Cajun Boil on the Grill

I came up with these everything-in-one seafood packets for a family reunion, since the recipe can be increased to feed a bunch. The foil steams up inside, so open carefully. —Allison Brooks, Fort Collins, Colorado

    This recipe was great! I did par cook the potatoes in the oven by roasting them with a little oil and salt and pepper. I also par cooked the corn in boiling salted and sugared water (after brining for an hour in same water). I guessed these items would not cook long enough in the packet to be tender without overcooking the shrimp and salmon. I also discovered another way to eat corn on the cob because of this recipe, with Old Bay on it. It's delicious!

    These ingredients all have different cook times. Nothing worse than over cooked Shrimp. Biting into Corn and it smells like Salmon, unpleasant.

    We do this in a big pot of "seasoned " water, I think this will be much better just steamed, much more flavor!! "Low Country Boil " w/out the boil !! Yum!! I tried to put 5 stars, wouldn't let me. I do not like this new format!!!!!

    Sounds wonderful, however, what is Cajun about it

    The ingredients blend perfectly and everything in the packets taste wonderfully. This recipe also works with leftover potatoes and cooked in the oven.
