Katie Hason says:
This sheet pan shrimp was so easy! I went with a bit larger shrimp and ate them as an appetizer. I'm going to make this again at my next party. It was perfect!
Jessica Scott says:
I've made shrimp a million different ways, but this was my first time making it on a sheet pan! So good! I added it to angel hair pasta for a delicious scampi style shrimp. This is definitely one of the quickest, easiest ways to make shrimp.
Ginger Hair says:
Good starter recipe. Added fresh green beans, cherry tomatoes, and baby carrots. Served with rice and feta cheese. Many variations would work.
Loren Schaffer says:
Chose this dish for a dinner party in a pinch. It was a great hit paired with spiralized zucchini noodles. Me and all my friends are eating gluten-free right now, but this didn't feel like anything was missing. Yum!
DC Cote says:
This sheet pan shrimp is everything! I used really big shrimp that were fresh, and it was sooo good. I paired them with roasted broccoli, perfect for weeknights or eating light on the go.
Rachel Douglas says:
This is my go-to recipe when I am short on time and want to eat healthy. The sheet pan meal is such a life savor! You can get creative with the seasonings, sometimes I use store bought seasoning packets to heighten the flavor.
