This is an entire seafood meal in a pouch. No muss no fuss. When finished eating just toss pouch in trash with no cleanup!
Just a note: For this recipe I keep bags of individually packaged frozen tilapia and salmon. The tilapia is pre-weighed in 3-ounce portions and salmon in 4-ounce portions. I always keep a bag of frozen shrimp handy so I can just take out the few I need. You can also buy frozen white lump crabmeat for the savings and convenience. This makes for a very quick and healthy meal in just minutes.
I season everything in the pouch with Old Bay seafood seasoning. You can use any seasonings you wish.
Lay out a piece of parchment paper (15" x 18") on counter (put something on all four corners to keep it flat or it will roll up on you). Slice the sweet potato very thin and place it in the center of the paper. Then in layers place the sliced squash, sliced zucchini, salmon, shrimp, crab, and sliced red pepper. Drizzle olive oil over all the above. Splash with balsamic vinegar to give an added zing to dish. Now for the sealing of the pouch: Fold over the top of the parchment paper and fold down to make flat. Then roll the sides to make a sealed pouch. Transfer pouch to baking sheet, and cook at 350°F for approximately 40 minutes. Place pouch on plate and open carefully. Eat from pouch to enjoy all of the great juices inside. When finished, simply throw pouch away and you have little or no cleanup!
