This sheet pan recipe comes from (we love those videos that we see everywhere on social media).  I changed it up just a bit.

When I made it a couple of weeks ago for dinner after work and it was ready when 2nd Man got home.  In the blast of a cold evening we both said this was like having a Summer dinner in Winter.

Ingredients after these step by step photos:

Sheet pan shrimp boil
Here are the ingredients...shrimp, Old Bay seasoning, corn, onion, red potatoes, garlic, Andouille sausage, butter, lemon, parsley.

Chopping the ingredients
Chop the onions, mince the garlic, shrimp should be peeled and deveined (I bought them already deveined, so I only had to peel them), slice the sausage, and cut the corn into pieces. 

Boiling red potatoes
Boil the potatoes for 7 minutes in water.

While they are boiling...

Butter, Old Bay, and garlic 
Melt the butter in the microwave, add the garlic and the Old Bay, stir and set aside.

Boiling corn and potatoes
After the seven minutes of boiling the potatoes, add the corn (and a little sugar, per Colleen's suggestion) and boil for three minutes longer.  What this does is par cook the two ingredients that would take the longest to cook.  At the end of the ten minutes total, take them off the heat and drain them...

Put them out onto the baking sheet and add the sausage, onions and shrimp.  Pour the butter sauce over all and toss to combine.

Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until shrimp are pink and corn is tender.

Sprinkle with chopped parsley and a few squeezes of lemon and plate it up.  

Sheet pan shrimp boil with corn, potatoes and sausage
It's SO good and tastes just like the best shrimp boil you'd have in July or August, but instead of boiling a giant pot of water outside over the fire or grill, you can whip this up in about 30 minutes, prep to table, when you get home from work.  It also works well to prep everything the night before and then all you have to do the next day is make the sauce (you want it fresh) and toss it all together.

  • 1 lb of small red new potatoes
  • 3 ears of corn, cut into pieces (3 or 4 each, depending on length of ear)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped into chunks
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 TBSP Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 lb of shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 lb of Andouille sausage, sliced into pieces
  • 2 TBSP chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges



  1. OMG. This looks Delicious.
    One problem; hubby doesn't like shrimp and won't eat corn so I will have to make a small batch just for me and me alone. :)
    I do add a bit of sugar in the boiling water when boiling corn on the cob but Do Not add salt to the boiling water as it will toughen the corn on the cob but adding
    a pinch of sugar will bring out the sweetness of the corn. (adding the sugar I learned from my late aunt years ago.

    1. I edited the post to add your suggestion of sugar in the water, putting some in at the last three minutes of the corn cooking part. Great idea. Thanks for sharing. And yes it's so good, 2nd Man was all "wow, I really like this". ha.

  2. Wow that looks amazing! Love a shrimp boil and who knew you could do it in the oven.

    1. I didn't think you could either but once I saw this recipe I knew I had to try. And darn if it's not just the most yummy thing!!! Thanks!

  3. Another great sheet pan recipe! And without all the time and mess! Y'all need to write a cookbook!

    1. Aww, thanks. I wish I could take credit for this one but I think it first appeared on Tasty and then sort of grew from there. Of course, they used different potatoes, and no onions, less garlic, etc, so I guess it's all relative, ha.

  4. That looks just delicious and so healthy! I feel like it's summer looking at that dinner! Makes me long for corn on the cob!!! :)

    1. It's so good and yes, definitely Summer. Isn't corn on the cob wonderful? Sigh.

  5. Oh wow - I missed this when it came out. I am making this meal this week - it looks so wonderful!!!!
