These low country boil foil packets are a breeze to make and packed full of flavor. Potatoes, corn, andouille sausage and shrimp all together in an easy foil packet that you can bake in the oven or throw on the grill. You’ll love this flavorful dish!
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.

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.
