Did the words “Sriracha-Spiced” in this title for Sriracha-Spiced Shrimp and Broccoli Sheet Pan Meal get your attention? If you’re a fan of Sriracha Rooster Sauce like I am, I hope that title made you smile! I was actually well into my food blogging years before I discovered how much I loved the spicy flavor of Sriracha, but I’ve been making up for that with lots of recipes including Sriracha the last few years.
This new recipe for a sheet pan meal with a spicy Sriracha glaze actually came about because I had some of those pricey jumbo shrimp in my freezer that needed to be used. I thawed them out when I was going to have a cooking session with my gorgeous niece Kara, and we experimented and came up with this tasty shrimp and broccoli dinner with Sriracha flavors.
Then I wondered if it was too close to summer to feature a Sheet Pan Meal but when I asked on the Kalyn’s Kitchen Facebook Page, people assured me they still love easy sheet pan meals even when the weather gets warmer. And this spicy shrimp and broccoli sheet pan meal cooks really quickly, so it shouldn’t heat up your kitchen all that much; enjoy!

How to Make Sriracha-Spiced Shrimp and Broccoli Sheet Pan Meal:
(Scroll down for complete printable recipe.)
- I used extra-large 16-20 per pound size shrimp, but if you have a smaller size, cook the shrimp for slightly less time.
- Let shrimp thaw overnight in the fridge or all day while you’re at work and then drain very well while you mix the marinade/sauce mixture.
- Pat shrimp dry with paper towels, then put shrimp in a Ziploc bag, add half the sauce mixture, and let shrimp marinate about 30 minutes (or a little longer won’t hurt.)
- While shrimp marinates, preheat oven to 400F/200C, trim the broccoli and chop into bite-sized pieces.
- Toss broccoli with 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil (or another neutral-flavored oil will work.)
- Brush a large baking sheets with a few teaspoon of olive oil and spread the broccoli out so pieces are not touching each other.
- Roast the broccoli 12-15 minutes, remembering it will cook more after you add the shrimp.
- Then add the shrimp (putting them in the spaces between the broccoli) and roast about 6-8 minutes more. (Don’t overcook; start to check after four or five minutes. Shrimp is done when it’s barely firm and bright pink.)
- Brush the cooked broccoli and shrimp with the reserved glaze mixture, sprinkle with Black Sesame Seeds (affiliate link) if desired, and serve the Sriracha-Spiced Shrimp and Broccoli hot!

Sheet Pan Meal Ingredients:
- 1 lb. large frozen shrimp, peeled and deveined (see notes)
- 1 lb. fresh broccoli, trimmed and cut into bite-sized pieces (see notes)
- 1 1/2 T + 2 tsp. olive oil
- 2 tsp. black sesame seeds (optional)
- 1/3 cup soy sauce or reduced sodium soy sauce (Use gluten-free soy sauce if needed.)
- 2 T rice wine vinegar (see notes)
- 2 T sweetener of your choice (see notes)
- 2 tsp. sugar-free maple syrup (see notes)
- 2 tsp. Sriracha Rooster Sauce (see notes)
- 2 tsp. Asian sesame oil
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- Let shrimp thaw overnight in the fridge or all day while you're at work and then drain very well in a colander placed in the sink.
- Whisk together the soy sauce, rice vinegar, sweeteners of your choice, Sriracha sauce, sesame oil, and garlic powder to make the sauce.
- When shrimp have drained well, pat shrimp dry with paper towels.
- Put shrimp in a Ziploc bag, add half the sauce mixture, and let shrimp marinate about 30 minutes (or a little longer won't hurt.)
- While shrimp marinates, trim broccoli and cut into bite-sized pieces.
- Preheat oven to 400F/200C.
- Put broccoli into a bowl and toss with 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. Brush a large baking sheet with 2 tsp. olive oil.
- Roast the broccoli for 12-15 minutes, or until it's as tender-crisp as you prefer. (I would taste a piece after 10-12 minutes if you like your broccoli fairly crisp. Remember the broccoli will cook longer with the shrimp.)
- Then add the shrimp (putting them in the spaces between the broccoli) and roast about 6-8 minutes more. (Don't overcook; start to check after four or five minutes. Shrimp is done when it's barely firm and bright pink.)
- Remove from the oven when shrimp is barely done and brush the cooked broccoli and shrimp with the reserved glaze mixture.
- Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired, and serve Sriracha-Spiced Shrimp and Broccoli hot.
I used 16-20 shrimp to a pound size; you can use a smaller size but reduce the cooking time a little for smaller shrimp. And buy shrimp already peeled and deveined if you have that option; so much easier! We had 6 cups broccoli florets after trimming.
I used Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link) for this recipe, combined with a little sugar-free maple syrup (or use agave nectar if you prefer, but it has more carbs). You can just one sweetener of your choice, but the maple syrup or agave helps the glaze stick to the broccoli and shrimp better. I love the look of black sesame seeds in this recipe.
Other ingredients we used included rice wine vinegar, Asian sesame oil , garlic powder, and of course Sriracha Rooster Sauce! Use more or less Sriracha to taste. Do not use seasoned rice vinegar which contains sugar. (Links are affiliate links.)

With approved sweeteners, this Sriracha-Spiced Shrimp and Broccoli Sheet Pan Meal is a great dish for any low-glycemic or low-carb diet, including any phase of the South Beach Diet. You might want to replace agave with an approved sweetener for South Beach Phase One or Keto diets, although truthfully I wouldn’t worry about such a small amount used in a marinade/glaze.
