“Easy, delicious, and attractive. Notice how the 2 pieces of parchment paper are cut into heart shapes. Maybe could be part of a Valentines meal. LOL! I put at least 8 shrimp (the 26-30 count size) in each packet. Just remember that you need to be able to fold down the edges. I usually omit the salt.”
