This is the next recipe in our little Southern "recipe-trip" and to be honest, I am not sure if I should either make this one this weekend or the other one! They both sound sooooo good. This one takes a little more elbow-grease but the picture is heavenly to look at...looks soooooo good! Yummmm.
Hopefully you guys are liking the Southern recipes! :)

Bon Appetit!

Grilled New England Seafood "Bake"
Maine's sunny coast is as close as your patio when you break into foil packets of buttery shrimp, cod, potatoes, and corn. Fill the packets up to a day ahead, refrigerate, and toss onto the grill when it's time to eat. Don't forget crusty rolls to sop up the flavorful sauce. 

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Yield: Serves 4

2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill, plus more for garnish
1 small garlic, minced
Coarse salt and ground pepper
8 ounces red new potatoes, scrubbed and thinly sliced
1 pound skinless cod fillet, cut into four equal pieces
8 ounces frozen uncooked medium shrimp {peeled and deveined}, thawed
2 ears corn, quartered
1 lemon, thinly sliced
2 hard rolls, halved

Heat grill to medium. In a small bowl, combine butter, dill, and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Fold four 14-inch squares of heavy-duty aluminum foil in half, forming 4 rectangles. Assemble packets: On on half of each of four folded pieces of heavy-duty foil, dividing ingredients evenly, arrange potatoes in a single layer; top with cod, then shrimp. Place 2 pieces of corn on the side. Season with salt and pepper. Add a dollop of the butter mixture and two lemon slices. Fold foil over ingredients, and crimp edges tightly to seal. 

Place packets on grill, with potato layer on the bottom. Cook, rotating {but not flipping} packets occasionally, until fish is just cooked through and potatoes are tender, 12 to 14 minutes. 

Remove from grill. Slit packets open, and transfer contents to serving bowls. Garnish with dill sprigs; serve with rolls. 

Pretty simple to make, right? 
Love that you can throw everything together and not have to cook each ingredient separately. I wonder though if you could bake this in the oven as opposed to grilling them as I am not a savvy bbq'r. 
Let me know if you guys give this a try. :)
