Sheet Pan Shrimp Boil is a fun and easy alternative method of cooking the classic Low Country Shrimp Boil recipe. Making this a sheet pan meal cuts out the need to boil water, and cleanup is so easy! A super fun family dinner idea!
Sheet Pan Shrimp Boil
We love a good Shrimp boil in our house. We love the family style meals where each person can serve themselves just by reaching in to the pile and fishing out what they like!
This recipe is normally made in a pot of boiling seasoned water, and that is quite delicious. I wanted to try something different, and it worked very well.
This method of cooking a shrimp boil is faster than the boiling method, so it's a perfect weeknight meal!
Sheet Pan Suppers
So what is a sheet pan supper? It is much like a one-pot meal. The idea being that the meat, vegetables, and such all cook together in or on one vessel.
In this case we are cooking the meal on a baking sheet (half-sheet pan).
You can make many other types of sheet pan meals using chicken, fish, sausages, and vegetables. The sky's the limit!
The key to a successful sheet pan shrimp boil, or other sheet pan meal is the size of the foods you are going to cook.
You will always want to set the cook time for the ingredient that requires the least amount of cook time. In this case it is the shrimp.
Choose small baby potatoes (or cut larger potatoes in quarters or half) so that they are done in the same amount of time as the shrimp.
You will also cut the corn cobs in half or thirds. These smaller pieces also make it easier to eat this meal with your hands, as intended!
