Here’s a family-style dinner recipe easy enough to make any day of the week!
If you love a traditional Southern-style shrimp boil, try making it in the oven, or even outside on the BBQ grill this summer! This is such an easy sheet pan meal that has rave reviews from my family, and I think yours will love it, too.
The result is an irresistible combination of buttery potatoes, corn on the cob, sausage, and shrimp that’s bursting with garlic and cajun seasonings.
All of the flavors and textures are so delicious and if I’m being honest, I think the roasted texture tastes even better than the traditional shrimp boils I’ve had!
I created a video to show just how easy this shrimp boil is to make!
I have made this shrimp boil using the oven and outside using my Traeger grill!
Both cooking methods yield insanely delicious results. You can use your largest sheet pan for the oven, or a disposable pan like I’m using for convenience on the grill.
On my pellet Traeger smoker/grill, it’s easy to set the temperature to around 400 degrees, much like the oven. If yours is a propane grill, try to get it heated as close to that as possible with medium-high heat.
Tips for creating an awesome sheet pan shrimp boil:
- Don’t skip the step of par-boiling the potatoes and corn. This is because the shrimp doesn’t take long at all to cook, and we want to make sure everything finishes cooking at the same time. You could also consider first steaming the potatoes and corn in the microwave wrapped in a wet paper towel for 5-6 minutes until tender as an alternative.
- I love this as an idea for camping or an outdoor BBQ gathering, as you could prep it ahead of time and throw it on the grill when ready to eat! So yum!
- Feel free to season as desired. The sausage adds lots of flavor, and I’m using some cajun seasoning as well as Old Bay seasoning for extra bold flavors.
- I’m using red potatoes in this recipe but have also used golden potatoes in the past and it was tasty as well!

My favorite sheet pan meal yet!
All of it smells so mouth-watering when it’s done cooking, and tastes so great together. The corn is perfectly sweet and tender, and shrimp isn’t overcooked. I love the butter sauce in the pan as well.

Here’s what my sidekick Jenna had to say after making this shrimp boil recipe:
“This is officially my new favorite meal! The seasonings MADE this, well that and the shrimp of course! I loved the lemon over the top. The cook time was PERFECT for the shrimp, and of course par-boiling the corn and potatoes is the perfect addition to make this work. I cannot believe how easy this was. This is something I will also make whenever entertaining for sure!” – Jenna
