Shrimp has quickly become one of the world's most popular types of seafood. The popularity of shrimp boils likely influences this increase in shrimp consumption. Boils are most often associated with Cajun cooking. However, shrimp boils are most associated with South Carolina and the gulf regions since shrimpers would boil their catch with onions and lemons. 

Although shrimp boils have existed for many years, they have become increasingly popular within the last few years. While you can make a traditional shrimp boil on the stovetop, you can also make a shrimp boil in the oven on a sheet pan. First, potatoes and corn are parboiled and added to a sheet pan along with shrimp and spicy andouille sausage. Next, the sheet pan shrimp boil gets tossed with a delicious seasoned butter consisting of minced garlic and shallots, Old bay seasoning, dried dill, and Classic Bakes homemade seasoning before it is baked in the oven until the shrimp are succulent and delicious. Shrimp boils are so delicious! It's hard to resist them. So enjoy every bite of this tasty shrimp boil. 

How long do you boil raw shrimp for?

Shrimp should only be boiled for 2 minutes. However, since we are making the sheet pan shrimp boil in the oven, they will take a little longer to cook. Shrimp cooking in the oven takes about 12-15 minutes. 

 

What do you drink with shrimp boil?

Several beverages pair well with shrimp. Strawberry lemonade, root beer, or any carbonated beverage like ginger beer or sparkling water pair well with shrimp boil. 

 

Should you salt shrimp before cooking?

Salt adds more than flavor to shrimp. It helps the shrimp stay moist as it cooks. Salt is not added to the sheet pan shrimp boil in this case because Old bay seasoning already contains salt. 

 

Why does my shrimp taste rubbery?

Unfortunately, rubbery shrimp is a sign that you've cooked your shrimp too long. Perfectly cooked shrimp will be tender with a delicate snap. However, since it only takes a few minutes to cook shrimp, they can easily be overcooked, especially if you are not paying attention to them. So, pay attention when you are cooking shrimp.
