Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using whole chicken breasts, pat dry and, on a clean cutting board, cut into 1” dice. Follow same instructions as shrimp in Steps 2 and 3, baking uncovered in hot oven until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 20-25 minutes.

  • If using steak strips, spread into a single layer, pat dry, and coarsely chop. Follow same instructions as shrimp in Steps 2 and 3, baking uncovered in hot oven until steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 12-14 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  1. 1

    Start the Peppers

    Turn oven on to 400 degrees. Let preheat, at least 10 minutes. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry.

    Combine diced peppers and 1 tsp. olive oil in provided tray. Spread into an even layer.

    Bake uncovered in hot oven until peppers begin to soften, 8-10 minutes.

    While peppers cook, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Make Slaw and Add Shrimp

    Halve lemon. Cut one half into wedges and juice other half.

    Combine slaw mix, remoulade, and 1 tsp. lemon juice in a mixing bowl.

    Carefully remove tray from oven.

    Pat shrimp dry. Add shrimp and corn to tray and stir to combine. Tray will be hot! Use a utensil.

  3. 3

    Bake the Meal

    Bake uncovered in hot oven until shrimp reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 10-15 minutes.

    Carefully remove tray from oven. Add pesto, Cajun seasoning, and a pinch of pepper. Stir to combine.

    Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave until warm, 30-60 seconds.

    To serve, fill tortillas with shrimp mixture and top with slaw and crispy red peppers. Squeeze lemon wedges over meal to taste. Bon appétit!
