How to Make SHRIMP BOATS ARE COMING (SALLYE)

Step-by-Step

  1. PREPARATION:

    Peel and devein shrimp (or be lazy like me and buy it already peeled and deveined)

    Thinly slice onion

    Cut squash into bite sized chunks

    Cut each ear of corn into approx. 1" long pieces

    Cut 4 or 5 pieces of heavy duty foil approx. 18" square.
  2. Place marinade ingredients into large bowl with cover.

    Mix well with whisk until ingredients are fuzed.

    Add shrimp and all veggies except mushrooms to marinade

    Stir until all shrimp and veggies are coated.

    Cover and place in fridge for 30 minutes to an hour.

    Preheat oven to 400ยบ.
  3. Remove from fridge, add mushrooms and stir until mushrooms are also coated

    Place one foil piece on large baking sheet in one corner, turn edges up slightly to prevent marinade running onto baking sheet

    Place 1/4 of shrimp & veggie mix in center of foil, pull each side of foil up and fold over and "scrunch" to make an airtight seal.

    Continue until all shrimp and veggies have been used. If you have leftovers, you can make another boat (pouch).

    Place in preheated oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes until veggies are tender and shrimp is pink.
  4. This can also be cooked on grill using same parameters

    Good served with rice, spinach salad, and bruschetta and feta (links below)
