Sheet pan shrimp boil. My mom visited a couple of weeks ago and when she visits, Lauren and I know we’re going to eat well, whether it’s cooking at home or going to some great restaurants in the Baltimore area. One dish that she became obsessed with a couple of years ago was shrimp boil. I remember her making it once a week for about a month. It might have been more often honestly, but things are a bit hazy. With it being summer and in the heart of Old Bay country, she wanted to bring back the Old Bay shrimp boil on a sheet pan that she made so often.
This recipe is actually inspired by one of my favorite blogs – Damn Delicious. The main difference is I just like a little more butter, garlic and Old Bay. I mean it is an Old Bay shrimp boil! A traditional shrimp boil can be quite messy, but with this all being made in one pan, it couldn’t be easier. Well you technically use a pot to boil the potatoes and corn, so I guess you use two dishes but I digress!
While it can be made year round, it just tastes better this time of year with fresh corn. So with summer in the air, now is the perfect time to give this Old Bay shrimp boil a try. Oh and if you’re feeling like another shrimp dish, then check out these Caribbean shrimp tacos or shrimp and grits. Or if you’re feeling like another easy sheet pan recipe, this Autumn sheet pan sausage and veggies is great.
