Sheet Pan Shrimp Scampi and Roasted Vegetables

Sheet Pan Shrimp Scampi and Roasted Vegetables

I love shrimp, but am always intimidated by cooking it. It’s SO easy to overcook shrimp and I would argue that undercooking it could have worse consequences, so I just… don’t usually cook it. This recipe is easy and it cooks the shrimp perfectly with the vegetables all in one pan. You can even line the sheet pan with foil for easy clean up afterward. This recipe can contain any fresh vegetables you have on hand, so get creative!

Ingredients

Shrimp

  • 20 oz large, frozen shrimp (deveined and tails removed), thawed
  • 1 tsp olive oil

  • zucchini
  • squash

  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning

Scampi Sauce

  • 1 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • grated parmesan cheese, to taste
  • fresh chopped parsley

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Line large sheet pan with parchment paper. Chop all vegetables and distribute evenly on the sheet pan. Cover mix vegetables with olive oil and seasonings coating well. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  3. While the vegetables are roasting, prepare the shrimp by coating evenly with olive oil and seasoning.
