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.


1 lb
large shrimp (26/30)
2 c
broccoli florets (small one)
2 c
julliene carrots
3-4 slice
salt and pepper to taste
drizzle oilve oil
drizzle sesame oil
drizzle soy sauce (or teriyaki)
canola oil

Directions Step-By-Step

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.

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

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.
