Escape to the Mediterranean for a fun weeknight dinner that will feed the whole family and leave you feeling satisfied!  The recipe is for Sheet Pan Mediterranean Shrimp.  As the name suggests, the recipe is cooked entirely on a sheet pan, so you have easy assembly, easy cleanup, and you can use the sheet pan as your serving platter.

You can eat the shrimp as is and enjoy the rest of the sheet pan ingredients as a salad or combine all ingredients, so you get a little of everything in each bite.  The shrimp is cooked to perfection and absorbs some of the other flavors while baking.  I think red onion can be quite potent but when it’s combined with the other Mediterranean flavors, it really mellows out but still give you a nice crunch.  The olives and feta cheese sprinkled over the top really bring it all together.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Add the shrimp to a large bowl.  I suggest using precooked shrimp that is peeled (less work).  Add 2 Tbsp olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, paprika, oregano, and lemon juice.  Toss to combine.

Wash and trim the asparagus.  Lay in a single layer on the baking sheet.

Place the shrimp on top of the asparagus, arranged around the baking sheet in a single layer.

Scatter the red onion on top of the shrimp.

Bake for 10-12 minutes on the middle rack or until the shrimp is heated through.

Remove from the oven and crumble feta cheese over the top.  Add the olives and fresh parsley over the top.

Serve immediately while still warm.  Enjoy!

What do you think?  It’s light, refreshing, and filling, without leaving you too full….if that makes sense!  Perfect for a weeknight meal or to use for lunches throughout the week.

Happy Cooking!
