Tips & Ingredients

SHRIMP Jumbo shrimp are hearty and delicious! But any shrimp will work in this recipe, just be sure the shrimp are peeled and deveined. If using a smaller shrimp, you may need to reduce the cooking time!

To tell if the shrimp is done, it should be pink in color with slightly opaque and white flesh.

POTATOES Baby potatoes or thin skinned potatoes work well for this recipe (and other roasted potato recipes). For a change, try sweet potatoes or yams. Cut the potatoes small enough so they cook quickly.

VEGGIES Any veggies will work great in this recipe! We love the flavor of asparagus, but broccoli, red peppers, shallots, or roasted pearl onions are all great additions.

For softer or thicker asparagus, add it to the pan sooner. For thinner stalks, add it to the pan later.

SEASONINGS With a handful of simple seasonings and red pepper flakes for a little extra spice this dish is loaded with flavor! Try tossing in a homemade fajita seasoning, or serving with homemade garlic butter for dipping the shrimp in.

What To Serve With Sheet Pan Shrimp

Even though this is just like a one-pot meal, it’s always nice to have side dishes!  Additional starches like rice or pasta aren’t necessary since potatoes provide enough carbs. Stick with extra vegetable dishes for light and pleasing flavor combination! And don’t forget dessert!
