When dinner needs to be quick and delicious with a minimum amount of clean up, this Sheet Pan Lemon Ginger Shrimp with Veggies & Potatoes comes to the rescue and will please the entire family in less than 30 minutes!
Did you know you can also make this sheet pan lemon ginger shrimp out on the grill, so you don’t have to heat up your house? All you need are a few bricks that you’ll place on the grate of your grill. Then you add the sheet pan atop of the bricks, close the cover of your medium/hot grill, and now your grill works like your indoor oven. Easy Peasy! *Special Note – Cover the bottom of the sheet pan with foil, so it stays clean and won’t turn black from the heat of the flames.
To get even cooking for this sheet pan lemon garlic shrimp meal, you’ll have to flip and stir the contents at least once during the roasting period and make sure that all the ingredients are in an even layer when you return them to the heat. You’ll also need to make sure to cut the potatoes into small size chunks, so they’ll cook at the same rate as the shrimp. Then, as soon as the potatoes are fork tender and the shrimp are pink and opaque, dinner is ready.
The ingredients you’ll need to make this Sheet Pan Lemon Ginger Shrimp with Veggies and Potatoes are, 1 pound of uncooked cleaned and deveined shrimp, one bag (1½ pounds) baby yellow potatoes, garlic, ginger paste, lemon grass paste, asparagus, broccoli florets, olive oil, salt, pepper, and sesame seeds (optional).
The tools and equipment you’ll need are minimal. A sheet pan, large bowl, spatula, knife and cutting board to prep the veggies and potatoes. That’s it! Oh, and if you purchase your uncooked shrimp with the shells still on, you’ll need to remove their shells and devein the shrimp if necessary. *Note – Keep the shrimp chilled in the refrigerator until just before cooking.

Shrimp is probably my favorite of all the seafood. It is easy to cook, basically non-threatening, and delicious. It can be rather expensive however, which is why I like to purchase it when it’s on sale and keep it in the freezer. Thawing frozen shrimp can be done in the refrigerator or by running it under cold water. Just remember that once the shrimp is thawed, dry it with paper towels and return it to the refrigerator to keep it cold until it’s time to cook.
