Okay, I won’t lie to all of you, I have been very busy in life lately. I received a promotion a few weeks ago and, although that is awesome, I am now doing my current job and my old job. Overall, I am the marketing department that serves an entire college. It is a BIG job. Because I am mentally beaten by the time I get home, I have very little mental space for my blog and coming up with new recipes. Stay tuned for an in-depth blog post about these feelings.
I’ve always wanted to entertain a Seafood Boil party. I wanted to get a big pot and add a bunch of potatoes, corn, sausage, and a variety of seafood. I’m talking shrimp, crawfish, crab legs, fish chunks, corn on the cob, and sausage. I would set up tables in my backyard, put newspaper down, set out a bunch of bibs and lemon wedges, and put the food right there on the table, and let my guests have added it! I think I’ll still do that one day but it is rather expensive to do something like that for many people. But it is on my entertaining bucket lists.
Therefore, until I am able to have a Seafood Boil the way I really want, I guess I will have to settle for this Seafood Boil Recipe in Foil Packets to satisfy that idea. Luckily, this is still a great option. Just like my Steak and Potatoes in a Foil Packet, which is a popular recipe on my blog.
How I made this Seafood Boil Recipe in Foil Packets
Because my lifestyle is so busy for the time being, I really need to find easy and simple recipes that aren’t crap, quick to put together, and simply easy. Luckily, I am married to the world’s greatest husband because he reminded me of a recipe I put together that I did not put on my blog and we loved it! Last year, I made a Seafood Boil Recipe in Foil Packet. All I did was throw some shrimp, Codfish, sausage, red potatoes, and sweet corn on the cob in a large piece of aluminum foil. I then seasoned the food with fresh rosemary, seafood seasoning, salt, and pepper. I added some butter to the packets and popped them in the oven. THAT’S IT!
Seafood Boil Recipe Variations
What I love about this Seafood Boil recipe is you can add whatever you want to this recipe. I believe the first time I made this Seafood Boil Recipe, I added some crab legs. But, they were a bit expensive this go-round. You can also add your choice of sausage. Because my husband doesn’t eat pork, I’ve added turkey kielbasa sausage. However, in a perfect world, I would add andouille sausage. Andouille sausage is spicy, juicy, and has a pronounced flavor.
As we are approaching warming weather and start to do our spring and summer entertaining, consider this Seafood Boil recipe as an option to serve your guests. All you have to do is make individual foil packets, fill them with whatever you want, place them in the oven for a bit, and that is really it. This Seafood Boil recipe is perfect for entertaining guests!Print
