Featuring fresh shrimp, tender baby potatoes, sweet corn, crunchy red bell peppers and a savory homemade herb butter drizzle, our Sheet Pan Shrimp Boil is an easy dinner that’s packed with flavors, textures and nutrition.

To make this healthy sheet pan shrimp recipe, get started by preheating your oven to 400 degrees. Prep a sheet pan with nonstick cooking spray or parchment paper and set it aside. While the oven is preheating, fill a pot with water and bring it to a boil. Boil the potatoes for about 10 minutes or until they are soft. In the meantime, you can make the herbed butter mixture by combining melted light butter, lemon juice, Old Bay or Cajun seasoning and chopped parsley.

Arrange the boiled potatoes, corn, shrimp and red pepper peppers on the sheet pan. Drizzle the butter mixture on top of the ingredients and toss them gently to ensure they are evenly coated. Bake this easy sheet pan dinner for about 15 minutes or until the shrimp are fully cooked. Finally, add a bit of chopped parsley as a garnish before you dig into this delicious dinner!

Healthy Hacks: Feel free to swap out the baby potatoes with cubed sweet potatoes! You can also use different color bell peppers for a more beautiful presentation. We love this dish with shrimp, but you can also make it a fancier feast with lobster. Yum!
