He memorialized the feat with a video in which he opens declaring that he’s got a “terrible idea.” You can see him bringing his supplies through a TSA checkpoint and he is fully aware that it “looks like a bomb.”
Once on board his Delta flight, he heads to the lavatory. There he unpacks his 6 volt battery pack, connecting it to a cigarette lighter-style power cord. And he does what everyone is told not to do as a child, powering up water in the sink.
He takes out the diaper changing table for a work surface. He cooks the shrimp in the water, take it out and places them on paper towels, and adds the dried mashed potato mix into the water. Now he’s got a bag full of garlic mashed potato-coated shrimp as a snack to enjoy back at his seat in economy.

Three years ago a man posted video of himself grilling a steak in a Delta Air Lines lavatory so… I guess? That man was also known for cutting the hair of the passenger in front of him on a plane when the hair was draped over the seat back, covering his entertainment screen.
Do not try this at home (err, inflight) kids. Passengers may eat a full slab of ribs, skin on fries and half an ear of corn on a plane but that doesn’t mean you should cook those things on a plane, unless you’re a crewmember employed by the airline and working in the galley of a properly-equipped aircraft.
Cooking on the ground is far easier! Anyone can make grilled cheese in their room with a hotel iron.
