I haven’t worked since Christmas and boy has it been nice to take some time off! We went on our family trip and then it has been pretty gloomy and rainy here for the past couple of weeks. It has been nice to focus on the New Year, set some goals, and spend time with the family. I love that the New Year has a focus on fresh and healthy meals and I especially love to meal prep. I meal prep every week with the husband because life gets so busy. I like to keep the meals unique and full of flavor!

This recipe is one of my favorites and I love how easy it is! Thow all of your fresh veggies onto the sheet pan with shrimp and sausage and toss in cajun seasoning. That’s it! You have an amazing meal that is ready in just about 20 minutes.

How do you make Cajun Shrimp and Sausage Vegetable Sheet Pan?

Start by chopping your favorite veggies. I like to use vegetables that cook fast with the shrimp and sausage. Asparagus, zucchini, banana squash, red and red pepper all work great. Toss your vegetables with the shrimp and sausage. Add olive oil and the cajun seasoning and spread evenly on a sheet pan. Bake in a 400-degree oven for 15-20 minutes.

  1. Going to make this tonight, just to let you know when I tried to print the rescipe using the print icon it comes out blank in print preview and won’t print.

  2. Haven’t made this yet. Dish sounds & looks delicious. However what do you think about seasoning everything together except the sausage since the sausage is already seasoned & then adding everything to the sheet pan? Just asking your opinion.

  3. I found a website that will put a nutrition fact to your recipes. don’t think that I can add a pic to this post.

    1. Do you remember what you got using that tool? I just tried it and got 551 calories per serving. I assumed the recipe made 4 servings.

  4. 5 stars
    Where are the nutrition facts and the portion amount? I actually Sauteed the recipe it was delish.

    1. It turns out perfectly with this recipe. If you are nervous you are welcome to alter the recipe in way to make it your own. Hope you enjoy! Thanks for following along with me! XOXO

    I made this last night and unfortunately it was super watery. The veggies ended up steamed instead of roasted and the water washed off most of the seasoning. I am wondering what went wrong. Any suggestions?

    1. In looking at the recipe, I anticipated the problem you describe. Both shrimp and the squashes tend to contain a good bit of water. I haven’t tried this recipe, but I plan to cook mine on a wire rack over the sheet pan, in hopes it will at least wick away some liquid and reduce the steam effect. Good luck!

    2. One suggestion is to reduce the number of veggies. Forgot where I got them from, but its true for me:

      Overcrowding the pan – When the pan is packed to the gills with veggies, pushed up next to one another, or worse yet, in a double layer, vegetables will steam rather than roast. As they cook, vegetables give off moisture, and when arranged too close together it results in a soggy outcome.

      Follow this tip: To achieve beautiful browning and crisp, roasted perfection, vegetables need some breathing room. Arrange vegetables in a single layer and don’t overcrowd the pan

  6. Could you please clarify if we should use pre-cooked smoked sausage, or uncooked sausage? I’d love to make this but I don’t use sausage (uncooked or cooked) in too many recipes, so I’m not sure which is being asked for in this recipe. Also, do you make your own cajun seasoning or do you use store-bought? Thank you – the recipe looks delicious and I’d love to make it for my family.

    1. I like using the pre-cooked smoked sausage for this but if you prefer the uncooked sausage you will need to bake a little longer on your timing. I use the store bought Cajun seasoning. Thanks for following along with me! XOXO

    1. I like to use or to find any nutritional information about recipe. Hope that helps and you can find what you are looking for! XOXO

  7. I see that you have the same recipe for oven and stove. Which would you recommend to do for a less greasy meal. Just curious if you prefer one over the other. I am planning on adding chicken also. When would you cook the chicken first before adding the sausage and vegetables. I hope to hear from you soon. I’m cooking it tonight.

    1. I like the sheet pan in the oven. It seems to have less grease and is a little quicker and less standing at the stove cooking. You are welcome to cook the chicken first or just make room for it on the sheet pan and bake it until it the temperature is at 165*. XOXO

    Oh my, such a great and tasty meal was easy to make, especially for a working mom. My family absolutely loved it. Thanks so much, I changed it up a liitle and added some freshly squeed lemon juice and a variety of other seasonings, just amazing, thanks for the idea.

    My mouth is on fire!!!! This recipe is super easy and makes a TON!!! I did way more than 1 lb of shrimp and I did a whole bunch of asparagus, so I ended up doing 3 tbsp of seasoning, but I probably should have left it at 2 tbsp!!! Definitely would make again, but not add extra Cajun seasoning ?

    I opened the page for the recipe hoping to only find a recipe. I was surprised and thought that I had reached a dating page of unobtainable beautiful women. Needless to say I scrolled down to find an amazing recipe that I have tried. Thank you so much for a recipe that will feed a single person (me) for 2 or 3 dinners and/or lunches.

  11. Hi! This may seem like a silly question but is the sausage that you use for this recipe the already fully cooked kind? If so, what brand do you like to use? I love sausage recipes, but have always been confused by if the recipe is calling for the uncooked vs. already cooked.

      1. This calorie count is to feed about 4 to 6 people. I have the calorie count for 4 people and that each of them will get 1/4 of the sheet pan meal. Hope that helps!
