We cooked the shrimp in batches in a large, piping-hot skillet and then tossed them with butter, lemon juice, and fresh parsley; we also like pairing these shrimp with a thick, glazelike sauce with assertive ingredients and plenty of acidity as a foil for their richness.

  • Russ, those packets are definitely something I have to try. One big packet would probably feed the wife and I. Thanks for the video and best wishes for the new year.

  • Hey brother. I love what you do. I’ve used several of your recipes. But I had to cut out the onions. Nobody in my house likes them. Lol.

  • Us Yankees could never find those jumbo shrimp for $4 @ pound here! Unheard of! I need to come down and visit you just for the shrimp (and your cooking). ��������������

  • AB… I appreciate how simple you make your recipes. I started with the oxtail recipe. Now I’m a huge fan. My hubby appreciates you as well. He gets to try new things

  • Dang. Another drool-worthy video! You make everything look so easy and magical! Me want! I am not worthy (bowing down…) So very very happy I found your channel!

  • I remember Justin I gar-own-tee. There are a few episodes of his show available on YouTube now. I hope more are to come. Great memories. Oh, and that’s a great recipe you shared. Thank you!

  • Turned the volume off, but looks really good. Will have to try soon. I hope I add correct measurements since you didn’t mention measurements. Thank you!

  • Looks so good had my mouth watering. This the 2nd channel I watched this technique. I’m definitely gonna try it. Love how it saves time.

  • AB I’ll be trying that on Father’s day for my family of six plus some of your sides. I have two bbq’s so I can put three packets in each no problem. Thanks, Perry………

  • First time seeing this channel. Subscribed after your first sentence. You have a nice voice to listen to and explain things wonderfully. You are such a likable dude. Thank you, Sir, for taking the time to make these videos for us amateurs! God bless you!

  • making this again for a much needed family get together (just a few-still covid 19) big request for it from my daughter again for her birthday july thanks for such a good simple recipe you the man!

  • I moved to Louisiana with a guy from Alabama, and you are the best source of recipes he likes. I’m learning so much. You’re doing God’s work. <3


  • So awesome and I know that sausage is good. I cant wait to get some more of it. Nobody rocks a seafood boil better than you do. No matter how you do it. Happy Thanksgiving, Brother

  • I’m making this but I took another ladies recipe that she does sifu to and she did it for 425 degree 15 to 25 minutes I’ll let you know how it came out God bless I hope this helps

  • This just reminds me I pay 30 plus for a plate exactly like this when I can spend 1 dollar potatoes 2 dollars of corn and maybe less than 5 on shrimp and walla

  • I love to cook love this stuff guys I just created a YouTube channel to follow my progress I would love some support/feedback so please hit subscribe and check it out peace

  • Que horrible! El aluminio es cancerígeno. Recomiendo para todo el lector la comida es apetecible pero no No cocinen con el aluminio. Incluso los desodorantes son unos de las causas que generan cáncer en los senos, en Alemania ya los chocolates vienen envueltos en papel de mantequilla o en un plástico. Quieren disminuir la taza del cáncer. En Sudamérica cocinan en ollas de aluminio y en Alemania es prohibido.

  • Now where in the hell am I supposed to find shrimp for breakfast? You should be ashamed of yourself doing that to us. Lol
    I’ve been doing the packets for years but with chicken or other meat. But shrimp is still my favorite all-time food and this is going to happen soon.
    Have a happy great Thanksgiving!!

  • man you did a really good job on this one. I may want to try it and use some of that (crab steaming seasoning I got from the north east)

  • I love you the way she bring forth her Dishes…love you girlllll….You make every dishes looks delicioussss…..��������������������������������

  • Destin is a great place, Rus. Do a Wiki search for Choctawhatchee Bay. I used to live in Niceville, FL. Justin Wilson (RIP) was a real hoot. Great video…

  • Bro you saved the girl ask me to make her some shrimp packets for her bday Aug 13 basically 2 weeks. I searched YouTube for shrimp packets and your video was the first to pop up!! Love how simple you made it look and love your seasoning choice!!��✊��

  • Couple of suggestions…
    Cut sausage lengthwise first and then line them up to slice horizontally. Also why not butter and season everything at once and then portion it out into the foil packs?

  • Good video, but down here in Louisiana we POUR CRAB BOIL that little cap doesn’t even reach our taste buds ������ If you like TURKEY NECKS try boiling them in crab boil it’s a popular snack for us ✌✌

  • Rus, that’s a neat little grill right there! Looking forward to seeing you on your planned cruise to Destin. I’ve tried the packets and you’ve given me some tips for next time. Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Awesome video. Just like you said, this is a perfect way of having a seafood boil kinda meal without actually having a x gallon boil. Unfortunately here in Germany, Shrimp are more like $10 for half a pound so its great to have a way to cook smaller portions!
    Thanks for sharing, Rus and happy Thanksgiving!

  • Wonderful idea doing those packets Rus. I’m gonna have to get me some of that Justin Wilson seasoning. I grew up watching him too!!! Sure do miss him. I’m looking forward to seeing your sailboat videos too!!! Cheers brother and Happy Thanksgiving to you and the family!

  • Stove Top Kisses someone made a seafood boil at a potluck one time and baby it was NOT sopped up actually it was dry. Crab legs was dry and the corn cob was dry. That seafood catastrophe needed some spiritual healing. Lol ��

  • Geez no instructions! Thanks for all the helpful comments!! Any alternative to the old bay seasoning, not a huge fan of the flavor??? Help???

    So happy I found youkeep them videos coming!! Much love!!

  • Ms Stove Top Kisses taught me how to cook but this temperature + time combo didn’t work for me ���� Next time I’ll adjust the temperature because I had mine in for 15 minutes for about 45 minutes now and it’s not cooking how it’s supposed to ��

  • Georgia gal here! I live on the coastal region; and country boils are the regular but at cookouts. You had me hooked with the onions. Love ’em. Gonna try your recipe. You season your food well. ��

  • This is the exact formula HowToBasic uses for his videos; show finished product first then show quick shots of how to prepare it before destroying it. Now I know where he gets his inspiration for his videos lol.

  • Followed this as a guide, made 3 packs. But added 3 lobster tails split in half and scallops, mine were large so cut into 3rds to match size of shrimp. Came out absolutely perfect. Scallops were best scallops I’ve ever had.. oh I also added slivered red chilli peppers at one end of each pack for heat and sweetness.

  • Great video Rus.. I’ve heard of the seafood boil foil packet ; but never tried tried it ; but with ur video & guidance I’m sure that i won’t make a mistake… SMOKE ON BROTHER

  • Hey girlfriend, I did your Hennessy pineapple cake. Had this with two scoops of vanilla I cream. That cake had me hooked also my grandchildren. I’m now going to bed and am feeling to go sneak and take a piece again.

  • Just wanted to take a minute to wish u a happy Thanksgiving Russ. Thank you for all your hard work and time u spend making these videos so we can be better pitmasters.

  • Great way to do a shrimp boil with folded up foil packets Russ. I remember sailing with some friends on the Chesapeake Bay out of Deltaville, Va. 20 years ago and we did exactly the same thing but cooked them on a hanging BBQ grill off the aft end of the sailboat. Good times and good eats was had by all. Thanks for sharing and you have a great Thanksgiving. Cheers my friend!

  • That sure looks good! Nice little pellet grill too. I loved watching Justin Wilson. His opening line always cracked me up: “I’m happy for you to see me today. I guarantee!”. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Rus. ATB

  • I live in the Destin area. Can’t wait to see your videos. That little grill is adorable. It had way more space than I was expecting.

  • this looks easy and delicious. Since I don’t have a pellet grill I think this would be great on the back yard pit. I will give that a try, durning this colder weather.
    It will warm both me and the food. Great video. Will be looking for your videos from the boat soon.

  • Great video rus and awesome recipe and I totally agree i love a great cooked shrimp and hey rus have you ever heard of pepper palace?? And i love this trick i agree shrimp will have flavor if you leave the head on it is just let some meats if’ you leave the bones in you have more flavor to the meat awesome video man keep up the great videos rus

  • I used to anchor my shrimp boat on the lee side of Deer island….. Nice area over there and the cove at the west side of Horn Island…… Lot’s of pleasure boats there also…. Boats used to come over to me and buy shrimp for grilling on the beach right there……

    Plus Tard………..

  • Hell yeah that looks awesome and on the money saving side also……. I don’t think I recall the big BUT you had mentioned for doing it in the oven…..????

    I will try that since I have access to fresh shrimp also….. I always have crab boil in my pantry.. BUT I will be adding mushrooms in my packets……….

  • That’s a great grill for many occasions you want a grill but don’t want to haul the big one around. You moved this one with so much ease that I’m sure women could move it around without the struggle of those big grills. The shrimp boil in a packet looked delicious. Thanks for showing us how you make that. Hope you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  • I don’t know if it’s my iPad or your camera or YouTube but sometimes during the video there is a buzzing and humming. But on a different note Great video. Have to try it myself.

  • Looks good but you dont pre boil the potatoes with the corn and sausage? It seems like that would be the one ingredient that needs to be

  • We the people of Louisiana reject and denounce this dry, unseasoned, no boil mix concoction!!!
    This is county made not Parish made!!!

  • Besides the greatness you create, your cameraman must have some credit too.
