Before Cajun Seafood Bake

  1. Peel, devein, clean, and season shrimp with Cajun spice, refrigerate until needed.
  2. Par cook both regular and spicy kielbasa over medium heat on stove top to brown the skin.
  3. In a pot, boil corn for about 5-7 minutes to soften.
  4. Mix together potatoes and sliced onion, then microwave for 12 minutes.
  5. When ready to cook, preheat grill to medium heat.
  6. Measure out roughly 12 pieces of 10-12 inches worth of tin foil.
  7. Lay one piece of foil down at a time and place 3 pieces of kielbasa (2 regular & 1 spicy), 4 shrimp, 2-3 mussels or clams, 2-3 crawfish, potatoes, onion, tomatoes, 1 piece of corn, 1 garlic glove, 4 tabs of sliced butter, fresh parsley, fresh chives, and season to taste (covering all components) with garlic powder, salt, onion, powder, and Cajun spicy.
  8. Cover with another piece of tin foil folding up the sides tightly to avoid any heat to escape. Repeat for remaining 5 packages.
  9. Place all packages on the bottom grate of grill for about 15 minutes.
  10. Remove and cut open or unfold top layer of tin foil. **WARNING** packages will be extremely hot, so handle with caution.
