Sheet Pan Shrimp Boil

Sheet Pan Shrimp Boil is an easy and flavorful meal that tastes just like your backyard shrimp boil, but is quicker and can be made all year round!

My love for Southern food runs deep. 

Between fried chicken, shrimp and grits, shrimp creole, and anything with pimento cheese, I will gladly devour it all. Now, one of favorite Southern traditions to partake in is a shrimp boil. I actually had a chance to do a crayfish boil in Louisiana and it was life changing. 

What is a Shrimp Boil? 

It’s a traditional Southern meal prepared of shrimp, sausage, corn, red potatoes, and more! The meal is cooked outside in large pots and is commonly served by dumping the whole boil out onto a newspaper lined table. It’s quite the feast for the eyes. 

What Ingredients are in a Shrimp Boil? 

Traditionally the boil contains shrimp, other seafood like crayfish, corn, potatoes, vegetables, and sausage (my favorite being andouille). 

How to Make Shrimp Boil in the Oven

Like I mentioned above the traditional way to make a shrimp boil is outside in large pots. Well, it snows here in Colorado so I wanted an option to be able to make this meal year round. Enter the oven method. 

Take all your ingredients – sausage, corn, potatoes, shrimp, and other veggies if you would like and place them on a large baking sheet. Next, mix together Old Bay Seasoning, garlic, and butter. Pour the garlic butter over the ingredients and toss. Place the baking sheet in the oven and cook for about 15 minutes. That’s it! 

Tips for Making the Sheet Pan Shrimp Boil: 

Parboil the potatoes. I know, I know. The recipe says sheet pan, but I promise you this will make the recipe taste 100% better. 
Be mindful of adding extra salt to the meal. Old Bay Seasoning has a lot of sodium already in the seasoning so just be careful when adding additional salt. 
Shrimp per person should be around quarter pound per person.
