There’s something about a big pot of Shrimp Boil simmering away to feed a crowd that makes everyone’s mouth water. Fortunately, you can enjoy the flavors of this legendary meal within the convenience of a foil pack.
Foil packs have made a resurgence in popularity lately. They are particularly convenient for campers since they can be cooked on the grill or directly in the campfire coals. The packs can also be made ahead of time, frozen, and brought with you for your camping trip. They then can assist in keeping other foods cold and you just take them out to thaw before you plan to eat them.
The ingredients are the same as you’d put in a pot of Shrimp Boil. You can also customize it to your particular favorites. Most will use shrimp, sausage, onions, potatoes, corn on the cob, lemon, and crab seasoning mix. You could substitute the shrimp with your favorite fish or even ham, if you prefer.
Be sure to use heavy-duty foil in your packs so they won’t puncture or tear. You can lightly spray the inside of the foil, place your ingredients in the center, and seal each end up tightly. These can now be cooked for two or twenty and you’ll have no dishes to wash.
You can find a recipe to make yours at Shrimp Boil Foil Packs.
You and your camping group can enjoy more time for fun and need less time for cooking and clean up when you make your food in foil packs. There are a wide range of things you can cook but this Shrimp Boil is a good start. We look forward to seeing you around the campground this year and hope all your camping meals are had with the people who matter most.
