  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and de-veined
  • 2 ears of corn on the cob, husked
  • 1/2 pound andouille sausage
  • 1/2 pound baby red potatoes OR baby yellow potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons old bay seasoning
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon red chili flakes (add more for a spicier kick)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (add 1/2 tsp more for a spicer kick)
  • juice of 1/2 lemon, plus lemon wedges for serving
  • 5 tablespoons butter melted + 1/2 cup, divided


  1. Chop corn into 1/3, then chop each third in half lengthwise. Quarter each of the baby potates. Boil corn and potatoes for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  2. In a large bowl combine shrimp, sausage, corn, and potatoes. Stir together melted 3 tablespoons butter, Old Bay seasoning, chili flakes, cayenne, garlic, juice from half a lemon, and salt and pepper to taste and pour over shrimp, sausage, and veggies. Stir to coat.

  3. Divide between four 12×12 inch sheets of aluminum foil. Fold edges of foil up around the food to create a closed packet.

  4. On a sheet pan, bake the packets at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes until corn is tender and shrimp are pink and fully cooked. While packets are cooking, melt remaining butter.

  5. Serve shrimp boil packs topped with lemon wedges and a side of butter for drizzling over the top or dipping.
