Directions

1. To make this baked shrimp and sausage foil packs: Preheat your oven to 425ºF (220ºC). Cut 2 sheets of 14 by 12-inch (35 x 30 cm) heavy-duty aluminum foil then lay each piece separately on the countertop.

2. Divide shrimp and sausage onto the aluminum foil near the center then place zucchini and asparagus on the side. Sprinkle generously with the Cajun seasoning mix.

3. Add minced garlic over shrimp, sausage, and veggies. Divide butter pieces evenly among the shrimp foil packets, layering them over the shrimp and broccoli.

4. Add a tablespoon vegetable stock in each foil packet and wrap packets in and crimp edges together then wrap ends up. Don’t wrap too tight – keep a little extra space inside for heat to circulate. 

5. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake shrimp and sausage foil packets in the oven, sealed side upward until shrimps and veggies have cooked through, about 15 minutes. 

6. Carefully unwrap the baked sausage shrimp foil packets with vegetables then garnish with fresh parsley and a slice of lemon. Enjoy!

Tips for Cajun shrimp and sausage foil pack recipe

If aluminum foil is a concern, you can use parchment paper to make the packets instead. You can also line aluminum foil with parchment paper to better close the packets. If you do not have a vegetable or chicken stock at hand, use 1/2 teaspoon powdered stock in the spice mix, plus one tablespoon water in each foil packet. If you don’t use butter, a good drizzle of olive oil will do the trick.

What shrimp to use for the foil packets

These make-ahead foil packets packed with shrimp and sausage is a full meal with zero clean-up! To make garlic baked shrimp and sausage foil packs, buy shrimp (or prawns) already deveined, shelled and cleaned to save time on prepping. You can use shrimp with tails on or off. Frozen shrimp is okay for this recipe, but fresh wild-caught shrimp tend to have better flavor.

What sausage to use for the foil dinner

We prefer smoked sausage for this dish because it adds a nice depth in flavor. Spicy Italian sausage would also work, make sure they are well seasoned.

What other vegetables can we use for the shrimp and sausage for packs

Broccoli is a great addition or substitution for zucchini and asparagus. Try also cauliflower florets, corn to add variety to your foil packet meal.

How long to cook the foil packs

Cooking time depends on the size of your shrimps – we used size 16-20 with a baking time of 15 minutes. Do not bake shrimps for too long or they’ll end up dry. You can open the packets and put back under the broiler for 2 minutes to crisp up the edges if you like.
