Ree Drummond makes teriyaki shrimp and pineapple wraps
Drummond offered his easy dish to a fan who asked for a seafood recipe during an episode of The pioneer woman. “I have just the thing,” she said. “Teriyaki Shrimp and Pineapple Wraps. It’s basically a really tasty stir-fry in individual foil packages.”
Drummond started by cooking instant rice, letting it cool, then adding it to a bowl. She added red pepper slices, canned pineapple slices, grated ginger, grated garlic, frozen peas, teriyaki sauce, salt and pepper and mixed it all together.
“These parcels are really convenient because you can actually put them together earlier in the day and put them in the fridge,” Drummond explained. “And then when everyone’s ready for dinner, you just pop them in the oven and before you know it, you’ve got parcels ready to go.”
The Food Network host divided the mixture between six pieces of foil and topped it with peeled shrimp. “Shrimp are great for quick dinners because they don’t take any time to cook,” she explained.
Drummond sprinkled toasted sesame oil on top and gathered the foil to form a packet, leaving a little space inside, “so it’s like a little tent.” She placed the packets on a sheet pan and cooked them in a 450 degree Fahrenheit oven for 15 minutes.
She took the packets out of the oven, opened them, and sprinkled each with cilantro, green onions, and a little lime juice. “I like how everyone gets dinner, but there’s not a lot of cleanup,” she said.
The full recipe is available on the Food Network website.

The Food Network star uses the foil-wrapping technique for a shrimp dish as well.
“Now, that’s a fun dish to cook. Delicious, delicious, great … and fun, fun, fun for a big group,” Drummond wrote in a 2009 blog post on The Pioneer Woman website. “The thing is, you just throw a bunch of sauce ingredients in a pan, cook it for a few minutes, then throw raw shrimp and (partially cooked) pasta on top.”
The Food Network host continued, “Then you wrap all the deliciousness in a big foil packet and finish cooking in the oven. It turns into a big, beautiful package of deliciousness. The seafood is cooked in the foil, which means all the juices and flavors stay in there… it’s so delightful.”
