  • Yield 6 servings
  • Prep Time 25 minutes
  • Cook Time 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 oz. precooked pork or chicken andouille sausage, sliced
  • 2 medium red potatoes, diced
  • 2 ears of corn, cut into thirds
  • 2 cups stemmed and chopped collard greens or Tuscan kale
  • 3 tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lb. large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined

Seasoning Blend

  • 2 tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 tsp. dried oregano
  • 3/4 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika

Directions

STEP 1
Preheat grill to 350 degrees F.
STEP 2
Place sausage and vegetables in a large bowl. Add olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper and stir to combine.
STEP 3
In a small bowl, mix seasoning-blend ingredients to create a paste. Pat shrimp dry, then place in a large bowl and toss with paste to evenly coat.
STEP 4
Cut six 12-inch squares of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Evenly divide sausage and vegetable mixture among the squares, then top with shrimp.
STEP 5
Place foil packs on the grill and close the cover. Cook for 20 to 25 minutes, flipping halfway through.
STEP 6
Carefully open the foil pack and test potatoes for doneness before enjoying.
STEP 7
Tip: Create pack by folding the shorter ends of the foil over the contents, and then tightly fold the sides and pinch together to seal.
