Sheet Pan Shrimp Boil

This Sheet Pan Shrimp Boil is so super easy to make and it’s way more flavorful than a traditional shrimp boil cooked on the stovetop. The reason for this is when you roast it, the ingredients are able to brown up a bit and color equals flavor!

I love a good shrimp boil – or low country boil as some call it, but I recently discovered that cooking it in the oven rather than boiling it on the stovetop adds so much flavor! When you roast it instead of cooking it in water, the ingredients get some browning on them which makes it taste even better.

This Sheet Pan Shrimp Boil can be cooked on a sheet pan or in a casserole dish, and I’ve done it both ways. I actually prefer cooking it in a casserole dish as it’s deeper and it allows the butter that you pour over top to puddle in the bottom. I love having a good butter puddle in the bottom of the dish because it makes dipping so much easier. When you bake it on a sheet pan, the butter spreads out further so you really have to sop it up to get it or transfer it into a separate dish. I am all about not having to use a separate dish!
