Seafood Bake Packs (Pinterest Find)

Ever find a recipe and like the look from the picture but then what you do doesn’t seem to be much like the actual recipe. That’s what happened here. I found this off of Pinterest which was taken from Betty Crocker’s recipe site. While I used a seafood medley, it wasn’t necessarily the amount and type that was in the recipe. Also I didn’t grill, I baked. It was still a feast and an easy one with not much clean up. Oh and I used different veggies. My version serves 4. Anywho, here is what I did:

Ingredients //
– 2 lb of seafood medley. I got the one from Costco that had shrimp, calamari, mussels and scallops. Make sure it’s defrosted.
– 5-6 medium red potoates
– 4 ears of corn
– 1 small onion
– Old Bay seasoning (I used the garlic and herb version)
– 2 sticks of butter
– 1 roasted garlic, recipe here.
– salt & pepper
– aluminum foil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Clean and cut the red potatoes (skins on) into bite size pieces. Spray a baking sheet and spread the red potatoes on it. Let the potatoes cook in the oven for 30 minutes while you prep everything else.  You can put the garlic in to roast at the same time.

Clean the corn and cut them into thirds. Also chop the onion into chunks, bite sized. Once the potatoes and garlic are done, take both out to cool. Lay out 4 sheets of  aluminum foil, maybe about a foot long. First put in the seafood evenly into each sheet. Then put in the corn and onion into each. By this time the potatoes should be cool enough to spread out evenly among the sheets. Sprinkle generously the Old Bay seasoning, salt and pepper and use a couple of forks to toss the seasonings among the food in the sheets, try to evenly coat everything. Next melt the butter in the microwave, then squeeze the roasted garlic into the butter. Whisk it a little to help the garlic dissolve a little. Then poor the butter over each of the food mounds you have in the sheets. Here is the kinda tricky part. You’ll want to fold the packs nice and tight. And put another later of foil over the seam of the first to help seal it. I put two packs each on a couple of baking sheets. Put it in the oven for 20 minutes then take them back out and flip. Put them back in for another 20 minutes and they’re done. Need to give them a few minutes to cool before opening up. We had this with a salad, crispy bread and a nice Riesling.
