Shrimp Boil Foil Packets

When we are camping on the beach we always take advantage of the local seafood! Shrimp is one of our favorites and the easiest way to make it while camping is in individual shrimp boil packages. It’s easy cleanup and you don’t even need a plate! 
2 lbs. of shrimp per four people
1/2 small bag of red potatoes
3 ears of corn
2-3 tbs. Old Bay or seafood seasoning
1 lemon quartered
This dish couldn’t be easier. The first thing you need to do is par-cook the potatoes. I just cut them in half and throw them in a pot and boil for a few minutes or you can throw them in the microwave with a splash of water and oil for four minutes. After that, cut foil pieces about 2 feet long for each person eating. Arrange foil on the picnic table and add equal amounts of corn, potatoes and shrimp per setting. Liberally sprinkle the old bay over each packet and add a quarter of a lemon to each one. From there, all you have to do is fold up the packet and cook for about 12 minutes. We made ours on the flat top grill but you could absolutely put them on the grill or in the oven. I like to go in every few minutes and shake them up to make sure everything is getting mixed up.
One thing to note… We like to have extra shrimp, so I also purchased an extra ear of corn and pound of shrimp and made one packet without any seasoning. We used the extra for shrimp salad the next day!
