Chipotle Lime Shrimp
Are you ready to try this one sheet pan chipotle lime shrimp bake? Not only is it delicious and nutritious, but it’s so easy to make. The best perk, however, is the fact that it requires very minimal clean up! At Kathey Jo’s Kitchen, we love an easy, minimal clean up and delicious kind of dinner, so try this shrimp with veggies meal and you’ll surly end up satisfied.
As you begin prepping for this meal, remember to preheat your oven to 400 degrees. You need a stable oven temperature, so give yourself at least fifteen minutes to get the oven nice and hot. The baby red potatoes take longer to cook, so you’ll begin by placing them in the oven for thirty minutes. Here you’ll drizzle them with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt after placing them on the greased pan. If you don’t have baby red potatoes, you can use baby Yukon golden potatoes, or any other that you have.
Another great tip you should definitely consider is keeping your squeezed limes. Rather than throwing them away, add them into the baking pan and you’ll see how much juice you’ll be able to squeeze out after they are roasted. Trust me you’ll love the flavor enhanced by the lime, even after they are cooked. This recipe is truly one of my favorites, especially after a long day where I don’t want any clean up yet a flavorful dinner!
