Ingredients:

  • Assorted Seafood (shrimp, mussels, white fish fillets) - 1 pound

  • Baby Potatoes, halved - 1 pound

  • Corn on the Cob, halved or cut into thirds - 4 ears

  • Cherry Tomatoes, halved - 1 cup

Equipment:

  • Oven-Safe Cooking Bag

Step 1: Preheat the Oven

Begin by preheating your oven to 400°F (200°C).

Step 2: Prepare the Seafood and Vegetables (Disregard if you purchased a spicy seafood bag from CFM)

In a large bowl, combine the assorted seafood, halved baby potatoes, corn on the cob pieces, halved cherry tomatoes, minced garlic, and chopped parsley.

Step 3: Season with Olive Oil and Spices (Disregard if you purchased a spicy seafood bag from CFM)

Drizzle olive oil over the seafood and vegetable mixture. Sprinkle Old Bay Seasoning, salt, and pepper. Toss everything together until well coated.

Step 4: Assemble in the Oven-Safe Bag (Disregard if you purchased a spicy seafood bag from CFM)

Place the seasoned seafood and vegetables into the oven-safe bag, ensuring an even distribution for balanced cooking.

Step 5: Add Lemon Slices

Nestle lemon slices among the seafood and vegetables for a burst of citrus flavor.

Step 6: Seal the Bag

Seal the oven-safe bag according to the package instructions, leaving some room for air circulation.

Step 7: Place on a Baking Sheet

Transfer the sealed bag onto a baking sheet. This provides stability and makes it easier to handle the bag.

Step 8: Bake in the Oven

Place the baking sheet with the sealed bag in the preheated oven. Bake for approximately 40 minutes. The combination of 400 degrees and 40 minutes ensures that the seafood is cooked through, and the potatoes and corn are tender.

Step 9: Carefully Open the Bag

Allow the bag to rest for a minute after removing it from the oven. Carefully open the bag, avoiding steam, and marvel at the aroma.

Step 10: Serve and Enjoy

Plate the seafood, potatoes, and corn on a large serving platter. Drizzle any remaining juices from the bag over the top. Garnish with additional chopped parsley for freshness.
