How to make it
- Get all of the ingredients together.
- if you have something you think would taste yummy steamed with shrimp, feel free to try it.
- I always use garlic and ginger though.
- Make the marinade sauce and marinade the shrimp for 1/2 hour to 1 hour, stirring 2-3 times.
- A shorter time will leave more shrimp flavor.
- A longer time will have a stronger teriyaki flavor.
- I usually go for 45 minutes.
- Once you're ready to cook, preheat the oven to 375 and make some rectangles of foil or parchment paper.
- Place a shrimp, a slice of ginger, a couple slices of garlic, some scallions, and a chili slice in the center.
- Make a sealed packet by folding over the edges several times.
- It's important to try and get the packet sealed air tight. The packets are suppose to steam while they cook so that all the flavor stays inside.
- If they aren't air tight, they'll still cook just fine, but they won't have as much flavor. If in doubt, try using a larger piece of foil.
- Place the packets on a cookie sheet and cook them in the preheated oven for 7-8 minutes.
- I usually just serve them sealed in the packets and let people open them themselves.
- BE CAREFUL!
- After they come out of the oven they'll be filled with super heated steam. it's easy to get burned as you tear them open.
