Ingredients and Variations
PROTEIN: Shrimp boils are made with seasoned shrimp, but sliced hot Italian sausage, kielbasa sausage, meatballs, or any other meat that goes with shrimp and a variety of veggies will work! Short on time? Frozen shrimp scampi is already cooked and seasoned and can go straight onto the sheet pan!
VEGETABLES: Sheet pan dinner recipes are super versatile! Here, colorful peppers, potatoes, and carrots are slow-roasted on a sheet pan but the sky is the limit for veggie mixes! Asparagus spears, brussels sprouts, cut ears of corn, squash, green beans, broccoli, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, even black olives add texture and new flavors to shrimp!
How to Make Sheet Pan Shrimp and Veggies
A traditional shrimp boil is loaded with colorful veggies, shrimp, and bold seasonings; this recipe does not disappoint! Add some whole cloves of garlic or sprigs of thyme to roast alongside the vegetables.
- Oil, season, & bake potatoes & carrots until tender.
- While potatoes are roasting, prepare bell peppers. Stir potatoes & carrots, add peppers, continue baking (per the recipe below).
- Add seasoned shrimp to roasted veggies. Cook until the shrimp is pink and opaque.
- Squeeze lemon juice over the finished recipe and serve.
Tips and Tricks
- For best results, cut veggies the same size so they all cook at the same rate.
- Place finished roasted veggies under the broiler for a few minutes to get them extra crispy and caramelized.
- Toss shrimp with a little teriyaki sauce to amp up their flavor before roasting.
This dish tastes better the next day and makes for a hearty school or workday lunch! Chop up vegetables and add to a wrap or tuck into some tacos for another easy weeknight dinner! Leftover sheet pan shrimp can be kept covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. If served with rice or pasta, separate the meat and vegetables and keep them in separate containers. Reheat under the broiler or in the microwave and season with salt and pepper.
- Roasted Chicken and Vegetables– classic entrée.
- Slow Cooker Beef Stew – warm and hearty.
- Instant Pot Ground Beef Stroganoff – kid-approved!
- Instant Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage – one-pot wonder!
