Defrost the shrimp under cold water (if using frozen), peel and devein leaving the tails on.  Cut the sausage into 1/4″ slices.  Halve the potatoes and microwave them in a little water for 4 minutes to give them a head start.

Lay out 4 sheets of foil, 15″ long.  Divide the ingredients evenly on the 4 sheets.  Be sure to place the shrimp on top so they don’t burn.  Drizzle with olive oil (1-2 tbsp. per packet) and sprinkle with Old Bay.

To make the packets, bring the long sides of the foil together and fold over twice to seal.  Fold over the ends.  You can prepare in advance up to this point and refrigerate.

When you are ready, heat the grill on medium low, cover and cook for 15 minutes.

Use tongs or a large spatula to lift the packets onto plates and open carefully so the steam doesn’t burn your fingers!

This is a must try dish for summer!  Having a cookout?  Foil packets mean no pans to wash and easy cleanup!

Notes ♪ ♫  Always check ingredients on prepared foods such as the Andouille sausage in this recipe for hidden gluten.
