Directions:
Preheat a gas or charcoal grill over high heat. Cut four sheets of foil, about 12-inches long. Divide shrimp, sausage, corn and potatoes into 4 equal portions and add to the center of each foil in a single layer. Fold up all 4 sides of each foil packet. Add olive oil, cajun seasoning, salt and pepper, to taste; gently toss to combine. Fold the sides of the foil over the shrimp, covering completely and sealing the packets closed. Place foil packets on the grill and cook until just cooked through, about 12-15 minutes. Served immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired. Serves 4.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I precooked the potatoes in the microwave to make sure they were fully cooked when baked. I also baked this in a foil pan, covered, at 425 degrees for 15-17 minutes. I also added little neck Clams to the mix. Excellent recipe!
