One Pan Spicy Garlic Shrimp – dinner is ready in 15 minutes, with this super flavorful, a little spicy, garlic shrimp recipe.
I am all about easy dinners that you can get on the table in 15 minutes. Life is crazy, so I don’t want dinner to be stressful and a burden. One pan meals are the best, because you only dirty 1 pan and clean up doesn’t take forever as well! Because who wants to spend 20 minutes at the sink cleaning up after you are done eating?
Sheet pan meals are a great way to cook a lot of food quickly and easily. Something like Sheet Pan Chicken has the chicken and the potatoes all together. That is my kind of dinner! Whenever I ask for dinner requests, Homemade Hamburger Helper is pretty high up on the list from my son. I am glad that he can appreciate the quick, easy, and one pan nature of a good dinner!
My family is pretty much obsessed with all things seafood. Shrimp being pretty high up there as a favorite. Unfortunately we live pretty much as far away from an ocean as you can get, so our choices are pretty limited. Lemon Garlic Shrimp is one of his favorite dinners. Shrimp dinner recipes are some of my favorite to make too!
Shrimp recipes are pretty easy to come by though, and it is often on sale. When it is on sale, I always buy extra to have in the freezer for last minute dinners. You can run frozen shrimp under cold water to help it thaw quicker. So on nights when I have nothing planned, shrimp is a great option. Plus it has very few calories, so it is actually good for you! Which is why I love to make crispy baked shrimp. Feels like cheating, but still good for you.
Spicy garlic shrimp is one of those dinners that comes together in minutes. You will probably have to wait longer for your oven to preheat, then it will take the shrimp to cook. I mix the seasonings, garlic and oil in a bowl to form kind of a paste. Then add the shrimp and mix it up until everything is well coated. Just bake, and you are done.
You can serve with roasted asparagus, or Italian cheese pull apart bread would be delicious as well! I squeezed a little lime juice over our shrimp when it came out of the oven to brighten up the flavor. The whole tray was gone in minutes! This baked shrimp is sure to become a family favorite.

Here are a few of my favorite kitchen items used to make this recipe
Sheet Pans: A good quality, durable sheet pan is great for baking cookies, roasting veggies, or full sheet pan dinner. These are my favorite kind and have been using them for years.
Measuring Spoons – I have to have a metal set of measuring spoons on hand. These OXO ones have magnets in the handles, so they always stay together.
Mixing Bowls: I love having a variety of sizes of mixing bowls. From small to large, I find that having at least 3 bowls of different sizes has been an essential in my kitchen. I prefer Pyrex because of the durability.
