Missy's notes for this recipe:
OMG!!! I can not tell you how great this meal is. It is your meat and vegetables all in one. I was able to prepare, cook and eat this meal with approximately 45 minutes. And clean up is a breeze. My hubby was so impressed.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lay out 4 pieces of aluminum foil. Brush a light coat of canola oil on the rectangle piece.
Then take and divide the broccoli, carrots, shrimp and a slice of onion. **please note if you want, you can use baby carrots, if you do use baby carrots, I would microwave steam them for a couple of minutes.
Drizzle each pouch with olive oil, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Then salt and pepper to taste.
Then fold over the fold edges to seal them. Place on cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes.

mmm... very inventive! This is a great recipe I can prep ahead and take to the park for a BBQ, camping, etc. Thanks for sharing:)

I love this recipe, Missy. Can you tell me about how big you make the foil?
user Missy Wimpelberg MWimpelberg - Jun 9, 2012
Christina, absolutely! Your welcome, Enjoy. We have done that too. They are great, we have also use salmon.

Susan, it is hard to say, but your pocket once it is folded up is a little bigger than let's say a 4x6. For the ones I made about I was able to get 2 pockets on the small cookie sheet. Does that make sense? You are basically creating a steam pocket. That is what En Papillote means, food folded up and baked. Hope this helps.

Thanks! I just wanted to be sure I started out with foil big enough to fold and make the pockets.
