This easy sheet pan meal with shrimp and crispy pepperoni is perfect for any night of the week since it roasts so quickly in your oven. It's a low carb, keto, gluten free, family friendly meal made in under 30 minutes!
ROASTING FRESH & FROZEN SHRIMP
Shrimp is one of the easiest proteins to prepare for dinner and get on your table quickly! You can easily stir fry it in a pan, but roasting it until hot and juicy with some veggies, makes for an easy more complete and easy sheet pan dinner meal to feed your family on a busy weeknight.
It's not a problem if you can only find frozen shrimp rather than fresh. In most cases it's cheaper to buy frozen. For this recipe, if using frozen, just leave the bag in your fridge overnight and it should be ready to go for the next night for dinner. If not, you can also dump all the shrimp out into a large, clean bowl and run some cold water over the shrimp. They will thaw out perfectly within 5-10 minutes then proceed with this recipe as directed.

Roasting the pepperoni in the oven not only releases the incredible flavor which soaks into the sweet, juicy tomatoes and shrimp, but it crisps up too. Make this your new favorite sheet pan dinner.
- ½ pound cherry tomatoes I used on the vine (apx. 250grams)
- 2 ounces red onion cut into wedges or(60g)
- 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil separated
- 1 tbsp butter melted
- 4 cloves garlic
- 6 sprigs fresh thyme
- 1 tsp salt
- ⅓ tsp black pepper cracked
- 1 pound raw shrimp peeled or (apx. 450 grams) if frozen see above
- 1 tsp paprika smoked (or to taste)
- 12 slices pepperoni
Preheat the oven to 355F / 180C / 160 fan.
Place the tomatoes and onion on a non-stick baking tray and carefully toss with 1 tbsp of olive oil, 1 tbsp of melted butter, garlic cloves, thyme, and half of the salt and pepper. Roast for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, butterfly the peeled shrimp. If you’re not sure on how to do this, see this video here.
Place in a bowl and toss with the paprika and rest of the salt and pepper. Add the pepperoni and shrimp to the tray and toss to combine. Bake for 3 more minutes.
Drain the juices from pan into a tall cup. Remove 1 garlic clove and about 4 tomatoes from the tray then place the pan back in oven for about 5 minutes to crisp up the pepperoni and cook the shrimp to your liking.
Meanwhile, blend the juices with the reserved 4 tomatoes and 1 clove of garlic (skin removed) using an immersion blender. Add these juices to a pan and simmer for about 5 minutes to concentrate and thicken.
Toss / drizzle the sauce over the sheet pan to serve plus 2 tbsp olive oil, optional fresh thyme leaves and cracked black pepper.
