Sheet Pan Hawaiian Shrimp
The weather is getting warm and its really starting to feel like it’s time for a stay-cation. What better way to start a stay at home get-away than with a dish inspired by the Hawaiian Islands. This sheet pan Hawaiian Shrimp sets the mood. Sweet and tangy taste that is easy to prepare, Heathy to boot.
Rather than spreading the rice to the far edges of the sheet pan, keep it closer to the center and layer the vegetables and shrimp on top. This way the juices seep right into the rice, and the teriyaki drizzle coats every bite.
Enjoy this dish on your deck or by a fire ring and pretend you are on that tropical vacation.
