Simple Shrimp Boil Foil Packets on The Grill Or Oven

Simple Shrimp Boil Foil Packets

These Simple Shrimp Boil Foil Packets are to die for, they taste very similar to the classic shrimp boils! I have had a shrimp boil one time, and really loved it, my husband on the other hand grew up eating them every now and again! So his family introduced me to the new menu item!

These foil packets make creating a shrimp boil super easy, you can bake them in the oven or the grill! With warmer weather here we wanted to do the grill, that is my husbands favorite way to cook! They turned out amazing!

If you are on Facebook, right now they have video’s of how to create these beauties and it is going  viral! I was amazed we saw these, made them then the next day 3 different video tutorials were floating around becoming a sensation! I totally get it because they are delicious and way easier than the classic shrimp boil!

Prepping for Shrimp Boil Packets

Simple Shrimp Boil Foil Packets on The Grill Or Oven

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Serving Size: 3-4


  • Aluminum Foil (best if heavy duty)
  • Raw Shrimp (21-25 we used bigger sized ones)
  • Crab (Optional)
  • 1 Kielbasa Sausage
  • 2 Ears of Corn
  • 4-6 Red Potatoes Diced
  • Mushrooms (Optional)
  • Canola Oil
  • Creole Seasoning


  1. You can cook this either on the grill or the oven, we chose to do the grill. My husband prepped the grill and got it going, I started to prep the packets.
  2. I started by rolling out a little aluminum foil for the packets, then I placed a little bit of each item in the foil packet. It is best to have it in a thin layer so it all can cook evenly.
  3. I drizzled the oil over the meat and veggies in each pack, I did about a tablespoon of oil per packet. Then just sprinkle seasoning over the top to taste. I did a good amount and once done, I sprinkled a little more.
  4. Make sure to seal up your aluminum pretty well so nothing spills. If you cook in oven I recommend keeping a cookie sheet or something underneath it to help make it sturdy.
  5. Cook until the shrimp is nice and pink and cooked through.
  6. Serve and enjoy, make sure to grab a napkin or two!


Depending on how many mouths you want to feed just add more of each item to compensate! Their is only two of us so we didn't make a ton.

We used the creole seasoning and it was delicious! My husband wanted a little more seasoning so he just sprinkled over the top once it was done! You can make as many packets of these as you want at a time, just assemble with more food in each. Their was only two of us, so we didn’t have a huge amount at once.

Like I had said above you can cook in the oven as well, just do 350 degrees, and cook until shrimp turns pink and is cooked through!

Here is a before picture, as you can see our shrimp was raw. We don’t have a store in our town that sells fresh shrimp, and it worked just as good. It added a little water that helped steam the food while it cooked which was nice!


Hope if you make this you all will enjoy this, it is great for parties!
