  • 18 pieces Corn on the cob, cut full ears into halves or thirds
  • 4 Red potatoes, cubed
  • 25 Uncooked shrimp
  • 1 lb Smoked sausage, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup Melted butter, or olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp Cajun/Creole seasoning, to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste


    1. Heat grill to 400F. You can use an oven if grill isn’t available.
    2. Cut heavy-duty aluminum foil into four sheets, approximately 12 x 18 inches each. Evenly distribute corn, potatoes, shrimp and sausage between the sheets. Drizzle melted butter and about 2 tbsp chicken broth over each foil packet. Season evenly and generously, to taste, with Cajun seasoning, salt and pepper.
    3. Tightly seal foil packets so no liquid can escape.
    4. Grill 30-40 minutes or until potatoes are tender, flipping once half-way through.
    5. Serve immediately. The steam will be very hot when you open the packet.
