I’ve just discovered baking seafood in parchment paper.  Last night, it was Baked Shrimp in Parchment.  Boy, was it easy, moist, flavorful, and delicious.  I’m always looking for easy recipes to cook since I work long hours.  By the time I get home I don’t want to do very much thinking about what’s for dinner.  Before I leave for work in the morning I look to see what’s in the refrigerator.  As I’m driving to work I think about what fresh fish I’ll be unloading off the local boats that day.  The wheels start turning in my mind.  I remember seeing a recipe online and decide to follow or change it up a bit.  I can help myself to the catch of the day or defrost some other type of seafood for my recipe.  Yes, we are all pretty spoiled when it comes to fresh quality seafood.  We definitely don’t take it for granted.

I baked the Shrimp in Parchment but changed up the recipe a little.  Parchment paper has become a pantry staple.  Parchment paper makes cleanup easy.  Baking seafood in it locks in the flavors and the juices.  For a special occasion like Valentine’s Day, the parchment paper can be cut in a heart shape.   All-in-one meal hat I can just bake and serve.  Lucky husband since he doesn’t have to clean more than one pan!!  My family enjoyed the Baked Shrimp in Parchment and hope you do too.
