NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds small potatoes, halved
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into wedges
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 12 -ounce bottle lager beer
  • 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined (tails left on)
  • 3/4 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
Directions

Preheat a grill to medium high. Stack 2 large sheets of heavy-duty foil; spread the potatoes and onion wedges in the center. Fold up the sides to form a bowl shape. Dot the vegetables with2 tablespoons butter and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt; pour in about two-thirds of the beer. Lay another large sheet of foil on top; crimp the edges to seal.

Set the foil packet on the grill; cover and cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, stack 2 more large sheets of foil and spread the shrimp in the center. Fold up the sides to form a bowl shape. Dot the shrimp with the remaining 1 tablespoon butter, sprinkle with the Old Bay and pour in the remaining beer. Top with another sheet of foil; crimp the edges to seal.

When the vegetables are almost done, add the shrimp foil packet to the grill; cover and cook until the shrimp are pink, 6 to 8 minutes. Sprinkle the vegetables with the parsley, and salt to taste. Serve with the shrimp and the cooking liquid from the packets.
