Additional and optional ingredients to add:

Italian sausage

Chicken, cut in chunks

Bell peppers


Red onions



Equipment you need:

· Barbecue grill


Step 1:

Lit up your barbecue grill and heat it for about 400 degrees.  

Step 2:

Make a packet or a pot with 4 hard foil sheets of the size, enough to fit in the ingredients.

Step 3:

Fill the foil packet up with corn, shrimps, potatoes and sausages and evenly spread them all around.

Step 4:

Pour the chicken broth over the uniformly distributed ingredients

Step 5:

Drizzle the melted butter on top of it.

Step 6:

Conceal the foil packet tightly so that no air passes through it. Fold the edges and its corner overlapping one another to seal the vacant spaces tightly.

This will help infuse the flavors and cook in less amount of time.

Step 7:

Place the packet over the hot grill and grill it for about 30 to 40 minutes until the ingredients are tender.

Step 8:

Flip the foil packet after halfway done for uniform cooking.

Step 9:

Insert either a knife or a chopstick to check for tenderness. Don’t use bare hands. The steam caged inside the foil is too hot!

Additional Note:

Some may face difficulty in having their potatoes done in time. So it is recommended to either semi-boil the potatoes beforehand or microwaves it for a minute. This will cut off the probability of undone potatoes after grilling. You may also cut it in relatively smaller chunks for quick tenderness.

Happy Cooking!
