Why We Love a Sheet Pan Recipe

In a perfect world, we can meal plan and have infinite time in the day to cook and prepare a meal. If we are living in this ideal world, there are also magical elves that come and clean the kitchen when we are done. However, we digress. It can be argued that the sheet pan is the next best thing to having magical elves.

The beauty of a sheet pan recipe is that they are extremely easy to do, and even easier to clean. It’s a quick step by step, in assembling the ingredient list and then laying it on a sheet pan to roast. While it is roasting in the oven, there is time to put together a side or help a kid with homework. Once it is ready, serve it up, and you can peel the parchment paper or the silpat and your clean up is done.

Silpats are a reusable mat that you can set on the bottom of your sheetpan! A great alternative to aluminum or parchment. You can find them HERE

You Will Love these Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas

We think shrimp are overlooked. The truth is, we could all afford adding more shrimp into our diets. Besides the fact that they are very quick and easy to make, shrimp are also very good for you.

Shrimp are low in calories, high in protein, and bring a ton of nutrients such as iodine and omega 3s and fatty acids into your diet. Don’t you love it when something as delicious as shrimp, also happens to be very good for you?

There is some prep work when it comes to using fresh shrimp. However you can be sure to ask the market to devein the shrimp, and then you only need to rinse it in your sink. If you are really short on time, or looking for a good Plan B, we have a bag of frozen shrimp in the freezer.
