Ginger-Orange Shrimp and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner

Whether you need to get dinner on the table quickly or not, this Ginger-Orange Shrimp and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner will soon become a family favorite.
Servings: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound peeled and deveined jumbo shrimp
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed**
  • 1 medium sweet pepper, seeded and cut into 1-inch pieces*
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, toasted

Instructions

  • Thaw shrimp, if frozen; set aside. Preheat oven to 425°F. In a small saucepan, combine orange juice, coconut aminos, ginger, garlic, and, if desired, crushed red pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Boil gently, uncovered, for 15 to 20 minutes or until mixture is reduced to about 1/3 cup, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat.
  • Meanwhile, rinse shrimp; pat dry with paper towels. Cut trimmed asparagus spears crosswise in half. In a large shallow baking pan (such as a 15x10x1-inch pan or a half sheet pan) combine shrimp, asparagus, and pepper pieces. Drizzle with oil; toss to coat. Spread shrimp mixture to an even layer.
  • Roast shrimp mixture, uncovered, for 12 to 15 minutes or until shrimp are opaque and vegetables are crisp-tender. Using a slotted spoon, transfer shrimp mixture to a serving platter. Drizzle with reduced orange juice sauce. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Notes

* Use half each of two different colors of sweet peppers to add more color variety.
** Use medium thickness asparagus spears. Really thick spears will not get tender in the bake time and really thin spears will get overdone.
