Ingredients You Need

Potatoes: small red potatoes work best for the sheet pan shrimp boil as they’re the perfect size to cook evenly with the rest of the ingredients.

Corn: Fresh corn cut in half gives the entire dish a better texture and ends up with a BBQ-like roasted flavor. However, frozen corn will work in a pinch too.

Butter: make sure to melt the butter before you dive into the recipe.

Seafood seasonings: Old Bay seasoning takes the cake here when it comes to the perfect blend to sprinkle on shrimp. Make sure to not only mix the amount in but save more for sprinkling on top, it’s that good.

Garlic: either chop it yourself or buy the jar of pre-minced garlic to make this weeknight dinner even quicker.

Shrimp: you can prep your shrimp ahead of time and make sure that it’s peeled, deveined, and the tails are removed. If you’re using frozen shrimp, make sure to thaw it first and get rid of any extra water.

Kielbasa: any one you enjoy will work or in its place you can use a smoked sausage like andouille to add a different flavor.

Tips For Success

Cooking the corn: You only want to dip the fresh corn into the heated potato water for a moment (about five minutes). This starts the cooking process but it’s the oven that will continue to roast it and bring out its flavor. You don’t want it water-logged.

Grease the dish: Regardless of whether you’re using a baking tray or casserole dish, make sure to grease it ahead of time. The last thing you want is your delicious mixture stuck to the sides.

Make it in advance: You can prep this sheet pan shrimp boil ahead of time by pre-boiling the potatoes and corn. Let them cool before storing them in the fridge for 1-2 days before assembling the dish fully and baking it.

Storing Leftovers

Once cooled,the leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.

To reheat the mixture, place it into an oven-safe dish and reheat it quickly in the oven at 375F. Keep an eye on it as you don’t want your shrimp to dry out or overcook.

What is a shrimp boil?

A classic Southern dish, a shrimp boil uses shrimp along with other seafood (like crawfish or crab legs) along with other ingredients and typically a sausage, and cooks them over an open flame for maximum flavor. The water is then drained, and everything is served.

Do I have to boil the corn and potatoes?

Since shrimp cooks so quickly, you need to pre-cook the potatoes and corn so that everything is finished at the same time. Otherwise, you’ll end up with dried-out, overcooked shrimp or hard, under-cooked potatoes.

What vegetables pair well with shrimp?

Some delicious options are bell peppers, asparagus, sauteed spinach, and roasted carrots.
