Grilled Potato Boats Stuffed With Smoked Cajun Shrimp

READY IN: 1hr 50mins




  • Wrap potatoes in foil and place on pre-heated grill (325-350 degrees-set up for indirect cooking) on direct heat side.
  • Pat dry shrimp with a paper towel, arrange on a foil pan in a single layer. Shake a light coating of Slap Your Mama seasoning on all, turn shrimp over and coat the other side. Sprinkle minced Garlic over top and put in fridge.
  • Once potatoes start getting soft, add shrimp pan to indirect side and add a few chunks of Cherry wood to get the smoke rolling. After 10 minutes, stir shrimp around and cook for another 10 minutes until shrimp are done.
  • Remove shrimp and potatoes. Remove foil from potatoes and cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out potato halves leaving roughly 1/8-1/4” layer in the shell to form the potato boat. Reserve 4 whole shrimp, rough chop the rest. Add an even amount of chopped shrimp to each potato boat, add cheese to each. Take the 4 reserved whole shrimp and place in a foil packet along with the juice from the foil pan, seal foil.
  • Place the stuffed potato boats back on grill over direct heat for 10 minutes, place the reserved shrimp in foil pouch on the indirect side for another 5 minutes. Cheese should be thoroughly melted and the bottom of the potato boats should have a nice char. Remove all from heat.
  • Add a layer of guacamole and sour cream, add one of the reserved shrimp on top of each boat and serve.
