PIN Roasted Asian Shrimp and Brussels Sprouts Sheet Pan Meal!
Have you noticed I’ve gotten a little infatuated with Sheet Pan Meals? And it seems like other people are crushing on them too, because a few of them have become wildly popular, especially my Chicken Stir-Fry Sheet Pan Meal.
Kara and I both loved the sauce on that Chicken Stir-Fry meal, and we both love shrimp and Brussels Sprouts, (especially roasted Brussels Sprouts), so that’s what inspired this Roasted Asian Shrimp and Brussels Sprouts Sheet Pan Meal, and we loved this combination.
We used jumbo-size frozen shrimp which I realize are probably a splurge for some budgets, but if you like shrimp I hope you’ll try this for a special low-carb dinner.

How to Make Roasted Asian Shrimp and Brussels Sprouts Sheet Pan Meal:
(This is only a summary of the steps for the recipe; please scroll down for complete printable recipe. Or if you use the JUMP TO RECIPE link at the top of the page, it will take you directly to the complete recipe.)
- Thaw the frozen shrimp overnight in the refrigerator, then drain the shrimp VERY WELL before you make this.
- When they are well-drained, blot dry with paper towels.
- Mix ingredients to make the marinade/glaze mixture.
- Put shrimp in a Ziploc bag, and add about half the marinade/glaze. Let the shrimp marinate while you start cooking the brussels sprouts
- Wash brussels sprouts if needed, trim stems, and cut in half. Try not to have too many leaves fall off, because they tend to get overly done.
- Toss brussels sprouts with olive oil, salt, and pepper and spread out on baking sheet.
- Roast in a preheated 400F/200C oven. Cook brussels sprouts 15 minutes while the shrimp marinate.
- After 15 minutes, drain the shrimp VERY WELL.
- Push the brussels sprouts over, and arrange shrimp in a single layer on the end of the baking sheet. Cook just until shrimp are done, about 6-8 minutes more.
- Remove from the oven, stir the shrimp and brussels sprouts together, and brush generously with the remaining marinade/glaze mixture. Serve hot.
Make it a Low-Carb Meal:
This would be delicious with Easy Cauliflower Rice with Garlic and Green Onion, Kalyn’s Favorite Baby Arugula Salad, Caesar Salad with Kale, Romaine, and Shaved Parmesan, Spinach Salad with Goat Cheese, or Cauliflower Gratin for a low-carb meal.

Roasted Asian Shrimp and Brussels Sprouts Sheet Pan Meal
Roasted Asian Shrimp and Brussels Sprouts Sheet Pan Meal is the perfect combination of for an easy dinner.
- 1 lb. jumbo frozen shrimp, thawed and drained well (I used 16-25 size shrimp.)
- 1 lb. brussels sprouts, stems trimmed and cut in half
- 2 T olive oil
- salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste
Asian Marinade/Sauce Ingredients:
- 1/3 cup soy sauce (gluten-free if needed)
- 2 T rice vinegar (see notes)
- 2 T granulated Monk Fruit sweetener or other sweetener of your choice (see notes)
- 2 tsp. Agave Nectar (or use another 2 tsp. sweetener of your choice, but the stickiness of the agave helps the glaze stick to the food)
- 1 T Asian sesame oil
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- Thaw shrimp overnight in the refrigerator.
- At least 15-20 minutes before you’re starting to cook, put the shrimp in a colander placed in the sink and let them drain well.
- Mix the soy sauce, rice vinegar, sweetener, agave, sesame oil, and garlic powder to make the marinade/glaze mixture.
- Preheat oven to 400F/200C and spray a large baking sheet with oil or non-stick spray.
- After the shrimp have drained well, put them on a layer of paper towels, cover with more towels, and blot dry, so they are as dry as you can get them.
- Put the dried shrimp and half of the marinade/glaze mixture into a Ziploc bag and let the shrimp marinate while you start cooking the brussels sprouts.
- Wash brussels sprouts if needed and dry well. (Most packaged brussels sprouts don’t need washing.)
- Trim the stem end off each brussels sprout and cut in half, taking care not to make leaves fall off as much as you can. (Individual leaves may get overly done when they cook; I kind of liked the dark single leaves, but Kara thought they were too bitter.)
- Put brussels sprouts into a bowl and toss with desired amount of olive oil, salt, and fresh-ground black pepper, then spread the brussels sprouts out in a single layer on the baking sheet and roast 15 minutes.
- After the brussels sprouts have cooked 15 minutes, drain the shrimp well in a colander placed in the sink.
- Remove baking sheet from the oven, push the brussels sprouts over to one side, and spread the drained shrimp out in a single layer.
- Put back in the oven and roast until shrimp have turned pink and are barely firm, about 6-8 minutes. (Smaller shrimp will cook more quickly; don’t overcook the shrimp for best flavor.)
- Remove the sheet pan from the oven, give the shrimp and brussels sprouts a stir (and remove any burned individual leaves if you have some), and brush with the remaining marinade/glaze.
- Serve immediately.
I would use granulated Monk Fruit sweetener (affiliate link) for this recipe, but use the sweetener you prefer. You can buy Asian sesame oil (affiliate link) at Amazon.com if it's hard to find where you live. Don't use seasoned rice vinegar, which contains sugar.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
This dinner featuring Shrimp and Brussels Sprouts is good for low-carb and Keto diets and also perfect for the original South Beach Diet. Some low-carb dieters avoid Agave Nectar, but in the tiny amounts used here I like the way it helps the marinade/glaze stick to the food. You can use sugar-free maple syrup or another approved sweetener to replace that if you prefer.

This was FABULOUS!
So glad you enjoyed it!
From the picture it looks like you deveined the shrimp, but it wasn’t mentioned in the directions. Did you? Does it matter?
The frozen shrimp I buy at Costco come deveined. If your shrimp have the vein I would remove it unless it doesn’t bother you.

I have made this twice, left out all the sweeteners and it’s still delicious!
Good to know! Thanks so much for sharing that info!
The only options I have at my grocery store for medium to jumbo shrimp is with the tail-on…I can’t tell by your picture if you left the tail or removed them. I like to have most of the work done to make recipes (and my life) easier so I choose the peeled and deveined, but they only come with tail on. After rambling, my question is do I remove the tail?
My shrimp have the tail off. The tails are not that hard to pull off, but honestly I don’t think it would be that bad at all to leave the tails on. Depending on how formal you are at your dinner table you could even pick them up by the tail and eat them! It certainly won’t hurt the flavor if they’re cooked with the tails on.

This was fabulous! A keeper! Thank you!
Making this now, can’t fit all the shrimp on the pan. Oh well, will cook the rest separately.
I am curious, I made your chicken stir fry sheet pan last week, loved it. That marinade has less stevia and more syrup than this marinade. Any reason for the difference, or are you just experimenting? I am making the chicken again when shrimp comes out for my lunch all week, that is how I noticed the difference!
The total amount of sweetener is less for the chicken stir-fry. I probably used more Stevia (monkfruit) in this one because Brussels sprouts are a strong flavor, but truthfully I’m not 100% sure. We experiment with the recipes and go with the least amount of sweetener/agave that tastes okay!

Thanks for thinking of me! I am no longer participating in that kind of event, but I appreciate the thought.
Sheet Pan meals are the best! I love that this combines 2 of my favorites – shrimp and sprouts! We will be trying this very soon! Thanks for including my Spicy Garlic Shrimp!
Thanks Erin, we loved this combination. Your Spicy Garlic Shrimp looks divine!
I'm looking forward to trying this! I must say though, when I roast Brussels sprouts and the leaves fall onto the pan they become delicious little crisps! Love em!
Hope you enjoy! I liked the really crispy ones too, but when we tested the recipe some people thought they tasted burned.
I'm not a huge fan of Brussels sprouts, except when they are roasted. And I'm a huge fan of shrimp always. What a great combination!
Thanks Lydia; we loved it so much!
