Easy sheet pan baked shrimp and veggies, prepared Mediterranean style! 25 minutes start-to-finish!
This is probably not a very cool thing to admit, especially for a food blogger, but here it goes…I don’t like to sweat very much in the kitchen.
I’m all for fantastically easy recipes. And, you probably know this by now, I’m very much a one-pot, one-skillet, or one-pan kinda gal.
Enter my newest attempt to avoid working too hard in the kitchen: Mediterranean sheet pan baked shrimp and veggies.
Take your trusted sheet pan, and throw in some veggies (in my case, a bundle of asparagus that was begging to be used, along with some cherry tomatoes and onions), plus a pound of shrimp. Dress them with an awesome sauce. And bake!
Now, the kicker is in the secret sauce. A combination of my favorite Greek extra virgin olive oil, with white wine vinegar, and a couple of spices. Ah, but, since I’ve been on a fresh ginger kick at home lately, I decided a spoonful of freshly grated ginger will do the sauce some good. And it sure did!
What else to serve with the baked shrimp & veggies?
This baked shrimp dinner comes together in minutes. If you like, add your favorite cooked grains on the side. I often do this Lebanese rice. Need more sauce on top? Drizzle a little tahini.

This recipe was so yummy! I did double the sauce and glad I did.
This recipe is incredibly easy to make with an outstanding result. Next time I will serve it with homemade pita bread (first recipe under Bread).
This is a terrific recipe - delicious, colorful and not difficult to make. The marinade is just delicious.
It is wonderful how sweet the onions get when they are roasted in the oven. I used less shrimp because we are not big meat eaters. It would even be good with only the marinated vegetables. Also I used half of a giant white onion, the other half purple onion.
This recipe gets a gold star in my book!

Easy - fast - delicious - once again a hit -Thank You Suzy
Very good. We were able to find sumac at bulk barn. Very tasty! Not a fan of asparagus or it’s after affects! Filled the veggie requirement with some broccoli’s, mushrooms and bell peppers. Served over brown rice and with salad. Definitely will make this again! We just started following the Mediterranean ‘diet’ on your site and have greatly enjoyed every recipe. Thank you!
