Ok, if your family is anything like RV Nana’s, then you have a few picky eaters in your group. I love to cook and prepare meals, but sometimes some of the ingredients don’t necessarily match the refined palettes of my wonderful family. I have come up with a solution to a recipe that I love all of the ingredients in, but not so much the fam. I call it “Cajun Shrimp For Picky Eaters”. These foil packets are so easy to prepare and everyone can stuff their own packet for the fire. I love to prepare camp dinners before I leave home and this one is no exception. I simply use lots of zip loc bags and a little prep at home means a little more time on the trail or adventure. This recipe is based on 4 servings, but you can expand as needed, based on the number of campers. Prepare all of the items below in individual bags.
2-3 ears of corn on the cob (break each ear into quarters)
4-6 Red Potatoes – no need to peel, just wash and cube
1 pound Shrimp – Uncooked and peeled
1 pound smoked sausage
1 Onion – cut into large chunks
1 bell pepper – sliced
12 mushrooms – halved
1 can chicken broth
1 stick butter
Salt & pepper, to taste
Give every family member their own large sheet of heavy duty foil and ask them to add their favorite ingredients. Drizzle melted butter and about 2 tablespoons of chicken broth in each packet. Add cajun seasoning and salt & pepper to taste. Fold the packets making sure to close all side securely.
You can put these in a 350 degree oven to bake or do it my favorite way on the frill or in some hot coals at the campsite. Cooks in about 25 minutes. Enjoy!!
