The Simplest Shrimp Boil

Jump to recipe

This is a recipe I have been dying to try for a long time. Having family in Louisiana I’ve always loved a good down-home shrimp boil. Normally this takes place outdoors with a ridiculously large pot over an open flame. It’s pretty awesome, but I needed it to be downsized to be devoured in my tiny kitchen. My dreams came true with the help of my oven. This Sheet Pan Shrimp Boil provided me with the delectable flavors of the outdoor experience in the comfort of my own home. This recipe is not only super simple, but also the clean up is quick and easy. This dish is a total win!

It’s summer and you know shrimp is my jam. I was lucky enough to find some easy-peel shrimp this week at my local grocery store. This provided a much easier experience than last week’s dish because I didn’t have to wait for my protein to thaw.  I could jump right into cooking. This meal incorporates a short amount of time boiling and ultimately finishing everything up in the oven. Admittedly, I was concerned about the doneness of the baby potatoes but in the end, it all worked out well and everything was done.

I’ve made numerous sheet pan meals and this one is definitely a new favorite. I’ve considered making this recipe in my instant pot and was super intimidated and to this day haven’t tried it. That’s definitely a kitchen adventure that I need to tackle rather than all of my horrible burn notice experiences. It’s a relief knowing despite any other renditions of this meal I try, this one is foolproof. This simple Southern staple on a sheet pan packs a flavorful punch in a snap!
