Easy Grilled Shrimp Boil

I have the perfect new summer weeknight meal for you. Quick and easy Grilled Shrimp Boil with large tiger prawns, fresh corn, baby potatoes and sausage, is tossed in a classic seafood seasoning blend and fresh parsley and drenched in creamy melted butter. It's buttery, garlicky and lemony. Tell me that doesn't make your mouth water. If you like a good classic shrimp boil then you will love them grilled. Grilling just brings out more depth of flavour with a hint of smokiness to it and gives it a nice texture with those sought-after charred grill marks. Plus, it takes just 20 minutes to cook. Now that is something that I can get behind.

What is a Shrimp Boil?

  • tiger prawns - you can also use jumbo shrimp. Any kind works as long as they are big. I removed the shells and the tail. You can leave them on, and peel the shell while eating, if that is what you prefer.
  • old bay seasoning - this is my favourite spice blend to use, but any kind of seafood seasoning blend will work.
  • fresh corn - remove the husks and cut crosswise into 2-inch slices
  • potatoes - I used a combination of baby red potatoes, blue/purple potatoes and yellow potatoes. Since they are smaller, baby potatoes cook faster. I also sliced them in half to help.
  • sausages - sliced into generous-sized pieces.
  • lemon - quartered.
  • garlic - 5 heaping cloves of garlic, crushed to bring out the flavour.
  • butter - melted.
  • parsley - freshly chopped parsley is best. You can also substitute with green onions.
  • olive oil - for brushing on the grill to prevent the items from sticking.

Remove items from the grill, and place into a large disposable aluminum pan, add in remaining butter, and cover with aluminum foil and seal the edges OR divide onto four 12-inch sheets of aluminum foil. Divide the remaining butter amongst them. Fold over to create a pocket and seal the edges by rolling them up).

How to Serve Shrimp Boil

Shrimp boil can be served as is, on its own. I like to serve it with some side dishes, especially if I am feeding a crowd. Some freshly baked French baguettes or sourdough bread pair really nicely with this. I also like to add something a little lighter like a fresh strawberry and avocado salad or summer corn salad on the side.
