Whether you are searching for a way to cook an unusual CSA vegetable, prepare fish for a crowd, or assemble a meal ahead of time, sheet pan dinners are your answer. Sheet pan meals are one of the quickest and easiest ways to prepare a healthy meal. Another amazing perk is that the clean-up is super easy, too. So how do you build a sheet pan meal? Below are three easy tips:
- Choose your protein. Things that work well for sheet pans are shrimp, (see recipe below) chicken, salmon, fresh tuna, beef, sausage, tofu & meatballs.
- Add your favorite veggies. The trick here is choosing a vegetable that will cook at about the same time as your protein. I also love using bags of already chopped and prepped frozen vegetables to save time.
- Drizzle with olive oil or avocado oil, salt, and pepper and/or whichever homemade marinade you choose and put it in the oven. You will have a delicious and healthy meal in under a half hour.
1-pound extra-large shrimp
1 pound/bundle of asparagus
3 tablespoons of olive oil
3 tablespoons minced garlic
½ cup of honey
salt and pepper to taste
Mix the honey, garlic & juice from 2 lemons and one of the oranges
Add the shrimp into the same bowl.
Heat oven to 375 degrees & prepare a sheet pan with parchment paper.
Cut ends off asparagus and slice the last lemon and orange into slices.
Arrange everything on your pan and dump the remainder of the marinade onto the asparagus and shrimp.
Top with fruit slices
Bake for 20-25 minutes.
