Today’s sheet pan shrimp recipe is light, vibrant, fresh, and most importantly easy!  It’s what I like to consider as the perfect meal for summer entertaining because it really is beyond simple to make, and absolutely stunning when served. 

Thanks to the insane popularity of our sheet pan salmon recipe, I was inspired to take another swing at the simple one-sheet-pan method.  This time with my favorite seafood shrimp, glazed in a citrus teriyaki with sweet and tender carrots, red onions and broccolini all atop a bed of vibrant citrus.  

For this sheet pan shrimp recipe the citrus is really the secret to this dish’s success.  It caramelizes beautifully in the oven, giving everything on the sheet pan a wonderful flavor and layer of natural sugar crystallization. Here I used blood oranges, oranges, limes, and grapefruit.  But the beauty of citrus fruits is that they all work together so well, so feel free to use whatever your heart desires on your sheet pan!

And another plus with using citrus: it allows easier cleanup because it prevents sticking.  You’ll still want to spray the pan, even if it’s a nonstick version, but you won’t need parchment paper.  

When trying this sheet pan shrimp recipe at home, remember that shrimp cook fast.  I actually roasted my carrots and onions first over the citrus for about 10-15 minutes on the sheet pan before adding the shrimp and broccolini.  Keep this in mind if you also prefer your carrots and onions to be tender and caramelized, though you can also cook the entire sheet pan with everything at the same time if preferred on the crunchy side. 

All in all, this dish can easily be made in under 30 minutes if you don’t personally deveining the shrimp. That step does take some time; I believe in doing it yourself because it’ll be done more thoroughly, but you can absolutely get them deveined at the seafood counter at the store too.  At least the lovelies at Whole Foods always devein when asked.

So voila, friends!  This sheet pan shrimp recipe is super simple, super impressive and absolutely delectable for a night entertaining al fresco.  Enjoy!  Truly, MKR
