Baked shrimp scampi is an easy sheet pan meal that we all devour! It’s bursting with the flavors of butter, lemon, and garlic with a bit of a kick from red pepper. This sheet pan meal is ready in less than 30 minutes. 

I’m back with another sheet pan meal for you guys and I’m excited about it.

My chicken and green beans were a total sheet pan success, so I knew I had to bring you more of those types of meals. Who doesn’t love simple, flavorful dinners with minimal dishes?

This easy shrimp scampi recipe is a total hit and I love that it works for low carbers but you can also serve over buttery pasta if that’s what the rest of your family is going for.

You could even serve this garlic shrimp scampi over zucchini noodles if you wanted to bulk it up even more, but we think it’s pretty perfect as is!

How to make keto shrimp scampi:

To start, you’ll want to slice a summer squash and zucchini into half circles and give them a good drizzle of olive or avocado oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.

Pop these on a sheet pan and into a hot oven for about 10 minutes.

While your veggies are roasting, prepare your shrimp.

I’m using medium tail on shrimp here, but you can definitely do tail-off. I just think they photograph prettier with the ta.il on. 😉

Add your shrimp to a mixing bowl and dump on some melted butter, red pepper flakes, lemon zest, minced garlic, and salt and pepper. Toss it all together to mix.

This shrimp scampi without wine is totally packing some flavor and I think you’re going to love it, even if it’s a bit different than a traditional version!

Remove the squash from the oven and scoot them off to one side of the pan.

Dump on the shrimp and then spread everything out into a single layer and pop it back in the oven for about 10 minutes.

The shrimp should turn pink and be a bit opaque when they’re finished cooking.

Your baked shrimp scampi is almost complete!
