Review: Home Chef fresh and Easy: Shrimp Scampi Couscous with Parmesan and Corn
Home Chef wanted to create the ultimate convenience plan with meals that required little or no preparation or clean up. This was our first time ordering from the Home Chef Fresh and Easy plan and we are very happy to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our experience.
Our meal kit contained a selection of high-quality ingredients – shrimp, a garlic and herb cheese spread, pre-cooked couscous, fresh corn, roasted red peppers, cream cheese, parmesan cheese, and an Italian panko blend. Making things even easier, was the fact that our meal kit included an oven-safe tray!!
This literally meant that apart from a mixing spoon, we did not need to use any kitchen items of our own. All that was required to get this dish ready was to mix all the ingredients in the tray, place the shrimp on top along with some salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. This was then baked in a 425-degrees preheated oven for about 20 minutes. We let this rest for a few minutes and then covered the contents with the panko blend for a delicious crispy finish. That was it. Dinner was so easy to prepare, yet it was fresh, satisfying and 100% delicious. It was just perfect for a relaxed and warming dinner for two.
Another nice feature of this dish is that you can customize it depending on your preferences, by using the “customize it” feature. This feature allows you to upgrade, change or double the amount of protein in the selected meal. For this meal, the customize it option offered diced chicken breast, jumbo shrimp and a double portion of shrimp.
