I’m going to add this Spicy Green Beans And Shrimp Sheet Pan Meal to my collection of Low-Carb Dinner Menus for Valentine’s Day because I think this recipe is so perfect for a special low-carb meal. The recipe is adapted from a roasted shrimp and broccoli recipe that appeared years ago in The New York Times but when I tried it I had some of those thin green beans from Costco in the fridge so I switched out the broccoli for green beans! And I hope you can tell from the new-and-improved photos that the green beans are absolutely perfect in this recipe!
My niece Kara helped me update the photos so we could recommend this to you are a Valentine’s Day dinner idea, and we devoured it when we ate some after we took the photos. I shared leftovers with Kara and later found out that we both ate them that very night; this shrimp was just so good we couldn’t wait to eat it again! And later Kara told me she thought this was one of the best recipes we’ve ever cooked together, so if you’re a shrimp fan it might become one of your favorites as well!
Whatever you do, don’t procrastinate cooking this if you’re a shrimp fan, because you’ll love this recipe.

How to Make Spicy Green Beans and Shrimp Sheet Pan Meal:
(Scroll down for complete printable recipe including nutritional information.)
- Preheat oven to 425F/220C.
- I used frozen shrimp, thawed overnight in the refrigerator and then drained well in a colander. These were de-veined and peeled shrimp from Costco and they were extra large (21-25 size per pound.)
- Zest the lemons and then squeeze the juice and save for another use (or save the lemons to squeeze on at the table.
- Toss the shrimp with zest from one lemon, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Let shrimp marinate while you start to cook the beans.
- Trim ends of the green beans; then cut into bite-sized pieces or leave them whole (which we thought looked nice).
- Whisk together olive oil, ground coriander, ground cumin, salt, pepper, and hot pepper flakes.
- Put beans into a Ziploc bag (or a bowl) and toss with the seasonings.
- Spread beans out in a single layer on the roasting pan and roast the beans for 10 minutes, turning once about halfway through if desired.
- After 10 minutes tuck shrimp between the beans and roast 6-8 minutes more, until shrimp are still slightly tender and have turned pink.
- Serve hot, with more lemon juice squeezed on at the table if desired.

I used 21-25 count shrimp from Costco that were deveined and peeled. I put the shrimp in the fridge to thaw overnight and when it was time for dinner the next day they were thawed perfectly. I used fine grind sea salt. If you don't have Aleppo Pepper (affiliate link) Cayenne pepper or other types of hot pepper flakes will work. Cut up the lemons and use to squeeze more lemon juice on at the table, or you can freeze the lemon juice. Recipe adapted from Melissa Clark’s Roasted Broccoli with Shrimp in the New York Times. I am dedicating this to the memory of my wonderful father who passed away in 2011. Anything with shrimp was my dad's favorite dish!
