Nothing says summer like a good shrimp & sausage boil!

Lucky for us, there's no need to pull out a huge boiler to get all of the flavors in a shrimp boil. I personally think it's way better to roast the combination of potatoes, sausage, lemon, corn, and shrimp in the oven - it concentrates the flavors so much and really gives it a smokey element. Plus, I love a little crunch on sausage and potatoes - you can't get that in a shrimp boil! Next time you get the craving for this summer dish, give it a try in the oven; you'll be pleasantly surprised.

This dish is definitely still bright without being too difficult. The lemon gives it just a little bit of a twang, while the classic Old Bay seasoning kind of ties everything together.

Here's how this sheet pan dinners series works...

A few summers ago, I shared a collection of sheet pan meals. The week after I share the last one, I posted a full freezer meal boot camp with all of these meals and more - prep them all in one day for weeks of easy dinners!

A few simple tips...

  • Aluminum foil is your friend! I line my cookie sheets in aluminum foil before putting the meal on to cook each time. Makes clean-up a breeze. I also recommend lightly spraying your aluminum foil with a non-stick spray before adding the meal.
  • Aluminum foil is also helpful to guard against drips in your oven. Most of these frozen meals will be melting off a good bit of condensation when cooking - that can sometimes make for a messy oven (and lots of smoke). To prevent this, use a baking sheet with a ½-1" lip around the edge. If you don't have that, fold the edges of your aluminum foil up to make a lip - that helps!
  • These bag openers are a must-have for prepping these freezer meals. It holds your freezer bag open to make meal assembly so much easier. I normally freeze my meals in these containers for Instant Pot meals, but for storage purposes, gallon freezer bags were my choice for this boot camp - it makes freezer storage much easier.
  • I normally try to put my freezer meals in the fridge the morning of serve day to allow for a little bit of thawing. This allows any ingredients frozen together to break apart and for the meal to cook evenly. If you choose not to do this (and are cooking the meal straight from your freezer), I'd recommend adding 15-20 minutes to your cook time - definitely keep an eye on your meal once the recommend cook time below is over.

  1. If freezing, do I still melt the butter ahead of time? How does this work?

    1. Yes, it's best to go on and melt it before freezing so it can cover everything evenly.
