How long do I marinate shrimp?
Marinating shrimp doesn’t take much time at all. In fact, you can do this while you prepare and bake your vegetables. In about 20 minutes the shrimp will take on the wonderful lemon flavors of the marinade.
How do I make a lemon pepper marinade?
Start by whisking together the olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic and the lemon pepper seasoning. In the same bowl, add the raw shrimp and refrigerate.
What can you season shrimp with?
Bake the Vegetables First – they will need more time to cook.
Once you have your shrimp in the marinade, you can then cut and prepare your vegetables to roast.
To a sheet pan you’ll add the carrots and broccoli. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with the lemon pepper seasoning. Toss together to coat. Then bake at 425 for 20 minutes WITHOUT the shrimp.
What veggies go well with seafood?
Hearty vegetables like broccoli, carrots and cauliflower go well with shrimp. Asparagus is also another great vegetable that goes with seafood.
Add the Shrimp then bake for a little longer
Once the vegetables have baked for 20 minutes, take out of the oven, and then add your marinated shrimp. Don’t pour all of the marinade onto the pan, just spoon on the shrimp. (You’ll want to discard the marinade after you take the shrimp out.)
Top with sliced lemons and a few extra grinds of pepper if you like, then bake for another 8 minutes.
How do I know when shrimp is done cooking?
You’ll know shrimp is done cooking when it takes on a whiteish-pink color and is no longer gray or translucent.
How to Meal Prep this Lemon Pepper Shrimp Recipe:
I like to pair this shrimp and vegetables with cauliflower rice. It’s a great low carb side keeping this recipe very healthy.
In addition to the shrimp I get my frozen cauliflower rice at Costco as well. This is a great Costco Meal Prep recipe!
