Barbara's Notes + Tips
Make sure to use heavy duty aluminum foil or two sheets of regular foil.
If adding potatoes, pre-cook them before adding to the packet. You can do this in the microwave. They should be almost cooked through.
You can use any size shrimp, if using very small shrimp, they will not take as long to cook.
Be careful when opening the packs as the steam will be very hot.
