Ingredients for sheet pan shrimp

This sheet pan shrimp dinner can be made with a variety of vegetables: but the ones we chose here are quick to cook! The veggies are only baked for 10 minutes before you add the shrimp, so you’ll need to stick with quick cooking vegetables if you plan to get creative. Here are the veggies and seasonings to make this sheet pan meal:

  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Red onion
  • Canned artichoke hearts
  • Green beans: the thinner the better! French are great if you can find them

Basic concept: dinner on a sheet pan

The basic concept for a shrimp sheet pan dinner? You’ll cook the veggies and protein right on the very same sheet pan. Shrimp cooks very quickly, but the veggies need a bit more time in the oven (though not much!). So you’ll cook the veggies first, then add the shrimp. Here are the basic steps:

  • Prep the veggies by mixing them with olive oil and seasonings. Place them on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Bake the veggies for 10 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Meanwhile, prep the shrimp by mixing it with olive oil and seasonings.
  • Add the shrimp to the same sheet pan and bake 6 to 8 minutes, until it’s opaque and cooked through. Easy as that!

  1. Really good. Simple, fresh, adaptable and easy/fast. I added black pepper (because that’s what I do) and some habanero salsa for a bit of kick once in the bowl— but really delicious. Great 👍🏻
