Easy sheet pan baked shrimp and veggies, prepared Mediterranean style! 25 minutes start-to-finish!

Baked shrimp on a sheet pan served Mediterranean style

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.

Baked shrimp with Mediterranean flavors and healthy veggies served on a dish

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.

  1. I made this! It’s my 2 nd Mediterranean dish I have made for my new Mediterranean diet lifestyle. So honestly this is better than all the unhealthy crap I’ve made in years. Thank you for the recipe!!💚⭐️🙏🥳

  2. I am a regular on your site and this recipe doesn't disappoint either. I used peppers and zucchini because that was what I had and it was absolutely delicious. The sauce is everything!

  3. Yummy! Easy! Colorful! Video great! Followed all directions exactly as written. Cooking times perfect. Served over quinoa.

  4. This was really delicious! I had a night when I didn't know what to make for dinner, but this recipe included everything I had in my refrigerator and shrimp in the freezer. I didn't have any sumac (or know what it was), but substituted some lemon zest. I also threw on some slices of zucchini. Delicious outcome! Thank you for great recipes.

  5. I love, Love, LOVE this recipe. Have made it several times and served to dinner guests who have loved it, too.
    The nicest surprise is that the red onions are almost 'candied' so doubled those after making the first time. And you're right about the asparagus - they are perfect in the mixture of flavors, Suzy. You're brilliant!

  6. I haven’t made this recipe yet as my friend from Seattle just made it last night & HIGHLY recommended it.
    Re: Sumac- U MUST put it on your list of spices- so delish .... sprinkle on Labne or plain Greek yogurt & drizzle EVOO on it & serve w/ pitas.
    Also, get Za’atar, otherwise known as Mediterranean Crack as it’s SOooo addictive!

  7. I made this and served it over whole grain thin pasta. It was excellent!
    Do you have any recommendations on how to reduce the amount of olive oil used in the recipe by at least half?

    1. Hi John, you can try reducing the olive oil, if you like. I don't know if you can reduce it fully by 1/2, but maybe adding more citrus juice?

  8. I made this tonight. I didn't have white wine vinegar so substituted when red wine vinegar. Otherwise I followed your recipe to a T. It was very flavorful. The onions were great. Nice and crispy.

    I think my shrimp was overcooked, and I cooked it for 5 minutes. They were varying size from medium to large, so I should have started with maybe 3 minutes and moved up. Shrimp was chewy. This would be great with just a bunch of different veggies and no shrimp as well.

    I like the idea of adding zucchini.

    Thanks for the recipe. I will make this again.

  9. We loved this recipe! Since there's 2 of us, I reduced it by 2/3. And dumbed down the sauce with more vinegar and some lemon juice and much less oil (old people who don't need much fat!) And I've never cooked with sumac! Wow, we enjoyed it. I used a sweet onion (had on hand), added zucchini slices too. We will do this often, thank you!

  10. This was VERY good and so easy. Love the one pan aspect for a quick and healthy weeknight meal. The sumac was a great touch. Thanks for this!

  11. I am fond of sheet pan meals. Real food, real fast, and easy clean up! I was delighted with this recipe. Veggies good as most roasted veggies are, but the shrimp was outstanding.
    I also could not find sumac but read lemon zest or lemon pepper would work. I did not sprinkle with extra lemon juice because the shrimp tasted so good straight off the pan.

  12. Excellent!
    Did not have the wherewithal to see ahead of time that a bit of rice would make it complete. Still however it was good, like really really good :-).

  13. Omg, this was so good! Couldn’t find sumac locally so I substituted fresh lemon juice and served it over edamame pasta from costco. Definitely a keeper, thank you so much for sharing!
