Cooking Know-How

As with most shellfish, fresh shrimp should be cooked briefly to avoid a tough rubbery texture. When grilling peeled and deveined shrimp, cook just until they turn pink and begin to curl - only a few minutes.

Use Your Oven

Heat oven to 350°F. Assemble and fill foil packet as directed. Bake 15 min. Remove from oven; let stand 5 min. Meanwhile, cook shrimp on hot grill pan on medium-high heat 3 min. on each side or until shrimp turn pink. Serve as directed.

Variation

Prepare as directed, except make 4 individual foil packets, filling each packet with 1/4 of the each ingredient. This way each family member can customize his/her own packet by adding or omitting ingredients as desired.

    My husband and I thought this meal was great. I did leave the shrimp in the dressing for a couple hours which may have added a little more flavor. My husband did add some hot sauce to his rice. I enjoyed my just as is.

    This was a good recipe. The shrimp was delicious (although I did add a little parsley). The rice was good but a little bland. Hubby did not like it.

    The night I had planned this meal, the weather didn't cooperate, so I had to make it indoors. I cooked the rice in a pot, boiling the broth and veggies before adding the rice, then I cooked the shrimp under the broiler. The rice was quite good but could use a little umph of seasoning, I think. Hubby added soy sauce to the leftovers when he heated them up. Also, I found the shrimp to be a bit bland and wished I would have added Old Bay to them, but overall this was a good recipe.
