Cajun Shrimp and Sausage Foil Packets are loaded with shrimp, sausage, summer vegetables and tossed in cajun spices. These are quick and easy and packed with big flavor!
After I made this delicious Cajun Shrimp and Sausage Skillet, I knew that a foil pack of this had to be made! Our family LOVED the cajun shrimp and sausage skillet so much and I might have loved it even more because it was so dang easy. Foil packets are all of the rage right now and I knew this one would be delicious.
Foil packets are such a great meal in one with easy clean up. They are great gilled, baked, or cooked over a campfire. The great thing about the shrimp and sausage combo is that they cook quickly and are ready to devour in no time at all.
The shrimp and sausage combo is amazing but it is even better surrounded by crisp and tender summer vegetables. I love using zucchini, banana squash, asparagus, and bell peppers. They all cook together quickly.
These really are so easy to just chop the veggies, add the shrimp and sausage and toss in cajun seasoning. I love easy meals lately and you do not have to compromise on taste or flavor to get big bold flavor in these foil packets!
I baked mine this time but I usually grill my foil packets or cook them over a fire. Since I am pretty serious about losing the baby weight now, they make great meal prep. It is a healthy and delicious summer meal that I know you guys are going to love.

This is a great recipe even in the oven. I used chicken sausage and adjusted the spice using Creole spice. Will definitely make again.
Can you prep and freeze ahead of time?
What could I use in place of Cajun seasoning?
You could try this instead! Homemade Blackened Seasoning
I turned this into a sheet pan meal with fabulous results!
It looks so delicious! What are the green herbs you used that we can see in the picture? It kind of looks like cilantro? I would like to try using the same herbs that you used. Thank you
Will probably try and make this weekend ~ is the shrimp raw or pre-cooked?
I used raw shrimp that has been peeled and deveined.
Excellent flavors, esp the sausage!
VERY GOOD! DEF A KEEPER!
Thank u for the best Recipe
Very delicious, but used broccoli to mine raw and it was still hard at 18 minutes. Think I’ll steam any veggies prior to.
Is the sausage pre cooked or raw like the shrimp?
This was great! The Cajun seasoning was definitely spicy since we aren’t it use to this seasoning. We like spice so this was good, but I’d still cut back a little in the future.
Thank u for the best Recipe
Ok the flavor is really good, but veggies came out mushy. Any suggestions?
Oh no! I am sorry they came out mushy. I would recommend using less oil on them and higher temperature for them. Hope that helps! XOXO
Do you have any Marcos for this dish?
