Tips for Baking the Best Sheet Pan Shrimp

  • The best way to bake shrimp is to marinate the shrimp first in melted butter and minced garlic – it helps keep the seafood moist when it roasts in the oven.
  • Add a little salt and pepper on top of the shrimp and asparagus with the juice from one lemon before baking in the oven. The juices will be absorbed into the shrimp and asparagus to add flavor.
  • When cooking shrimp, it’s important to not overcook them. Overcooked seafood can become tough, rubbery, and chewy — definitely not enjoyable! Bake the shrimp until they are just opaque all the way through. They should retain a C shape and not turn into an O shape.

About the Ingredients for Lemon-Garlic Shrimp & Asparagus

It only takes 20 minutes to prepare and makes your house smell like heaven and all you need are a few simple ingredients.

Shrimp – Large, raw shrimp. Make sure they are peeled and deveined before cooking with them.

Butter – Salted butter, don’t use margarine.

Chipotle Powder – Adds a little heat. Can substitute with Cayenne powder or if you don’t like any heat, use smoked paprika instead.
