These little low country boil foil packs are filled with all the things you might typically find in a low country boil – shrimp, potatoes, corn on the cob, andouille sausage and a sprinkle (or two!) of Old Bay seasoning.

It’s a perfect balance of meat to vegetables all with a zippy Old Bay taste.

I also like to throw in a wedge of lemon because one can never go wrong with a squeeze of lemon.

Low Country Boil Foil Packets Ingredients

  • shrimp
  • baby potatoes
  • andouille sausage links
  • corn
  • butter
  • olive oil
  • Old Bay seasoning 
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • parsley

How to Make Low Country Boil Foil Packets

Making these little low country boil foil packets couldn’t be easier. Simply throw all the stuff you need into the foil packet, wrap it up tight and get to cooking!

While your grill is preheating, in a large bowl add all ingredients and toss to combine and equally coat in oil and seasoning.

Layout your foil, scoop all of the goodness into the foil, wrap it up.  Throw it on the grill.  All you have to do is turn it once, then it’s done, squeeze a little lemon, and dinner is done!

Can I this in the oven?

Of course you can! I like to think of the oven option for those times you’re craving summer food in the middle of winter and the grill is covered by 12 feet of snow.

Ugh. Winter life on the east coast. 

If cooking in the oven add your packets to a large baking sheet and cook for about 15-20 minutes at 425 degrees or until everything is fully cooked in the packet.

Tips for Perfecting this Low Country Boil Foil Packets Recipe

Since your potatoes are not pre-cooked you have to cut them small enough to cook in the allotted time.

You can also opt to parboil your potatoes beforehand if you are worried.

You can also feel free to add more spice and Old Bay depending on your love of spiciness and saltiness of foods. If you’re looking for more heat without the hit of salt add a few dashes of cayenne pepper. 

If you happen to live somewhere that does not sell Old Bay you can combine your spices to make a homemade version. It consists of paprika, salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, and celery salt.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds medium-sized shrimp, cleaned and deveined
  • 1 pound baby potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 3 andouille sausage links, thinly sliced
  • 2 ears of corn, each ear cut into 4 pieces then each piece cut again in half
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning (more if desired)
  • Kosher salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, minced

    3. Layout 4 16-inch long pieces of foil and divide the mixture equally and put into the middle of each piece of foil.

    5. If cooking on the grill add the packets to the grill and cook for about 15 minutes, flipping the packet halfway through cooking.
    6. Remove one packet and test the potatoes for doneness. If done remove all packets, if not fully cooked add back to the grill until done.

      Hi, Can you please tell me what I can use in place of the "Old Bay Seasoning" as we don't have that here in Australia. Hubby and I go travelling a LOT in our caravan and this type of meal appeals to me for when we're venturing around. Thank you.

      Hi Josephine! Old Bay is a mixture of paprika, salt, pepper, crushed red pepper and celery salt. Hope this helps!
