Tailgate Shrimp

Here's a simple recipe I came up with for the Patriots game this weekend. It's spicy, quick and can pretty much all be eaten with just your fingers. It's perfect for tailgating


1 Kielbasa Sausage

1 Chorizo Sausage

1 Onion

1 2lb. bag of uncooked frozen shrimp

1 Shaker of Cajun spice such as Emeril's Essence

1 Can/bottle beer


1 Tin foil pan

1 Knife

1 Tongs or a spoon

1 Grill

I never have time to do any preparation before hand so this recipe is tailored to on site preparation. We actually stopped at the grocery store on the way to the game. You can do all the chopping and peeling ahead of time if you want.


Start the grill. Chop the Kielbasa and Chorizo into 1 inch chunks (finger food size) and put into the tinfoil pan. Chop the onion into chunks and add. Put the tinfoil pan on the grill and spinkle in a heavy dose of Cajun seasoning. Let the sausage mixture cook until the onions are translucent and the sausage is hot. Now add a beer to the tinfoil pan. When the beer starts to boil stir in the shrimp to the mixture. Sprinkle more Cajun seasoning. Close the grill lid (or add tinfoil cover) and cook until the shrimp are done.


Remove the tinfoil pan from the grill and place and place in a central location. Ring the dinner bell. Note, I didn't peel the shrimp but you can certainly do that if you desire. I figured since we are eating with our fingers it's easy enough to just let everyone dig in and peel their own.
