Sheet pan dinners like this Teriyaki Shrimp and Veggie Sheet Pan Dinner are my absolute favorite recipes to create. There is nothing more satisfying than having dinner done in around 30 minutes with limited dishes and mess. I also appreciate that I’m not slaving away in the kitchen, and able to get some things done around the house while dinner cooks.
Anytime you make a sheet pan dinner, you typically want to roast the veggies first. It gives them a chance to soften and cook.
Along with the veggies, this recipe calls for a chopped fresh pineapple, which is easily prepared with a 7-5/8" Petite Chef knife.
Cutco has a great tutorial on how to cut pineapple if you need some guidance.
This Teriyaki Shrimp and Veggie Sheet Pan Dinner also includes snap peas, which can be trimmed and tossed right on the pan, and asparagus, which is easily prepped using the Santoku-Style Trimmer.
The shrimp in this recipe cooks on the same sheet pan in just minutes, but only after the veggies have cooked a bit. Use a Slotted Turner to push the cooked pineapple and veggies to the side of the pan and then place the shrimp in the middle before turning to the oven for just a few minutes to let the shrimp cook.
The shrimp are so much tastier if you can pull them out of the oven just as they start to curl and turn pink. Overcooking them is what makes them rubbery.
This dish offers a wonderful balance of sweetness from the pineapple and brown sugar, and savory from the teriyaki sauce. You can also serve this recipe on top of a tasty bowl of steamed white rice or zoodles, or even throw the shrimp and veggies in a wrap. Any way you serve it, I am sure you will love it.
