Sausage Shrimp Foil Packet

Sausage Shrimp Foil Packet

Dinner doesn’t get any easier than this Sausage Shrimp Foil Packet. Stuffed with kielbasa sausage, large shrimp, potatoes and fresh corn cobs, this meal is satisfying, delicious and super fun!


Cook’s Notes

For the foil pack we used a quick and easy store bought, pre-made large foil packet, size 10X15 inch. We made one large family size sausage + shrimp dinner. If you’re using pre-made packets, just follow the package directions.


A note about the shrimp: I know that shrimp can be quite pricey, a splurge for most of us. So, unless there’s a kicking sale on fresh shrimp, we usually go for the frozen, easy-to-peel, deveined variety – and buy them when they’re on sale to boot. I place the shrimp in a large colander and defrost them under running cold water while peeling them. I place the peeled shrimp on a large plate or pan and then pat them dry with a paper towel.



1 lb. Large Shrimp, peeled and deveined

8 oz. Kielbasa Sausage, fully cooked variety, cut into bite sized pieces

8 Small Red Potatoes, halved or quartered

2 Fresh Corn Cobs, cut into 4 pieces each

¼ cup Olive Oil

2 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning



Add the shrimp, sausage, potatoes and corn to a large bowl. Add the olive oil and Old Bay Seasoning to the bowl while tossing; continue tossing until everything is nice and coated in the oil and seasoning.


Place all the ingredients into a large foil packet (18X12), or divide the ingredients into four individual foil packets. Seal the packet(s) well and place it on a large baking sheet for easy transport.


Grill the sausage shrimp foil packet

Preheat the grill to moderate heat.


Grill the foil packet, in a covered grill, over medium heat for 25 minutes, rotating the packet 180° about halfway through the cooking time. Note: If making individual packets, cut the grilling time by 10 minutes or so, rotating the packets as described above.


Remove the packet(s) from the grill. Cut a large X on across the top, open carefully and enjoy.
