And, of course, sheet pan dinners are so incredibly convenient.

This isn’t a clambake — but it reminds me of one.

My Slightly Disastrous Clamback Story

New England clambakes have always fascinated me. At 19, I persuaded our large church youth group to have a clambake near the Columbia River in Portland, Oregon.

It was a disaster.

I did my homework… promise… reading everything on hosting a clambake. I bought the freshest ingredients and searched high and low for the correct seaweed.

And found it, which was nearly impossible in my town back then.

The day was perfect… a cloudless blue sky. Not too hot, not too cool.

I talked the guys into digging gigantic holes in the ground. We layered everything perfectly… or so I thought.

We lined the caverns with found rocks… just like the books said.

Guess what?

My research never indicated that rocks could explode. Seriously! It was scary… and quite disastrous.

No one got hurt, and it took forever for the cooking holes to reach the right temperature. And guess what I discovered… We did it all wrong.

The silver lining? The food that exploding rocks didn’t destroy was absolutely amazing!

It could have been SO much worse.

The next time I attend a traditional clambake, it will be in New England… with people who know what they are doing!

Sheet Pan dinners — whether they be clams — or shrimp… are so much easier.

What I Love About Sheet Pan Shrimp Boil

After baking in the oven, the aroma of the roasted potatoes, juicy shrimp, and flavorful sausage fills the kitchen. The butter mixture coats each ingredient perfectly, creating a mouthwatering combination of flavors. The colors of shrimp, zucchini, corn, and onion are vibrant!

A squeeze of lemon wedge over the top of this sheet pan meal adds a refreshing tang to the already delicious dinner. The perfectly cooked, tender, and opaque shrimp, along with the corn, has a delightful sweetness, each bite bursting with flavor. The andouille sausage adds a savory touch we love.

And if by chance you are fortunate enough to have leftovers, as this recipe makes a generous portion, it’s easy to repurpose what remains for another meal the next day.

To do this, I like to cut the corn from the cob, add canned diced tomatoes or cherry tomatoes for extra freshness, and serve over pasta. A little like my favorite Easy Garden Pasta.

This sheet pan shrimp boil is so versatile, tasting great the first time but equally enjoyable the next day!
