Shrimp Boil Dinner on a Sheet Pan
This shrimp boil on a sheet pan is so incredibly easy. Just roughly chop the ingredients, toss them in some flavorful seasoning and throw it all on a big baking sheet pan. This recipe will feed a crowd or just your family; you can adjust the amounts to feed as many as you need.
A traditional seafood boil is cooked like the name suggests, in a big pot of boiling water. Making it on a sheet pan is so much easier than messing with a big pot, and you get that amazing caramelization that you can’t get from a pot of water. The flavors are so much richer, and each item can stand on its own.
Ingredients you’ll need
The ingredients for a sheet pan shrimp boil are pretty simple and rustic – nothing fancy here. For the shrimp you can leave the tails on because they look pretty, or remove them for easy eating.

How to make a sheet pan shrimp boil
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. This recipe will cook pretty quickly at a high temperature, especially the shrimp, which is what we want.
Boil a pot of water on the stove to cook the potatoes until they are just tender. Pierce them with a sharp paring knife. It’s ok if there is a slight resistance because they will cook a bit more in the oven.
Toss all of the ingredients together in large bowl then arrange on a sheet pan. I recommend using foil or parchment paper for easy clean up.
Bake for about 12-13 minutes or until the shrimp is cooked through.
You can serve these sheet pan shrimp boil just as is. It really is a complete meal on a pan. I like to garnish with fresh herbs like minced parsley because it gives a little color. Add some a loaf of bread and a salad and you’re good to go!
What to do with leftovers
If you happen to have leftovers from your sheet pan shrimp boil, wrap them up and place in an airtight container. Reheat on a sheet pan in the oven, taking care not to overcook the shrimp. For microwave reheating, I recommend heating the shrimp separately.
