My bright and citrusy Sheet Pan Hawaiian Shrimp combines tasty shrimp and roasted veggies with traditional Hawaiian flavors. Whip up this effortless meal in under 20 minutes for a fresh summer dinner or your weekly lunches.
Similar to my Mediterranean Shrimp, this Sheet Pan Hawaiian Shrimp is juicy, flavorful, easy to make, and filling. Made with fresh shrimp, pineapple, bell peppers, broccoli, natural fruit juices, and spices, this Hawaiian shrimp is a real crowd pleaser and never boring!
Sheet pan meals are a fantastic way to prepare your dinners or lunches quickly and ahead of time. Whether they’re prepared with salmon, scallops, or chicken, they’re always a great go-to when you aren’t looking to invest much time or effort in the kitchen. Plus, cleanup is a breeze!
As a bonus, this recipe can easily be doubled or tripled for a week’s worth of meals. Divide the ingredients between two or three sheet pans, cook, and then pack the portions away. It makes for a delectable and flavorful grab-and-go lunch, day after day.
This well-rounded and healthy Hawaiian pineapple shrimp recipe is delicious on its own, but I recommend serving it alongside some Cilantro Lime Rice or Kale and Mushroom Salad for more fresh flavors. Looking for a low carb option? Serve the shrimp over Cauliflower Rice and a Green Salad instead!
Hawaiian shrimp marinade
Marinating shrimp before it cooks will prevent it from drying out or tasting bland. Plus, it’s super simple and worth the wait!
The marinade in this recipe is made from pineapple and lemon juice, plus a few seasonings. Once it’s all combined, the shrimp will sit in the marinade for 30 minutes or up to 8 hours. The end result is tangy, slightly spicy, perfectly tender shrimp.
For the best results, make sure each individual shrimp is fully submerged in the liquid. You can marinate shrimp for up to 8 hours but any longer and the fibers of the shrimp will start to break down.
How to make sheet pan Hawaiian shrimp
Begin making your sheet pan Hawaiian shrimp by cleaning, peeling, and deveining the shrimp. Mix the marinade ingredients together in a bowl and add the shrimp. Leave it to marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to 8 hours.
Afterward, drain the shrimp from the marinade and place it on your prepared sheet pan. Add the pineapple chunks, bell peppers, and broccoli florets to the pan and season with salt and pepper. Give the mixture a quick toss, making sure everything is evenly spaced and no two ingredients are overlapping too much.
Bake your shrimp and veggies in the oven. If you like crispier veggies, feel free to turn on the broiler for a minute or two near the end.
Remove your baked Hawaiian shrimp from the oven and coat with more lemon juice. Give the ingredients one more mix before garnishing with fresh cilantro and serving over rice.
What goes well with Hawaiian shrimp?
The bright, tangy flavors of the baked shrimp pair well with a variety of sides. I love serving this fresh dish over brown or white rice, but it also goes well with pasta or quinoa. Serve your Hawaiian shrimp alongside additional fresh pineapple, my Roasted Garlic Vegetable Salad, or Pesto Pasta Salad.
For a fun, filling, on-the-go twist, serve your Hawaiian shrimp in tortillas or large lettuce leaves. Pair the shrimp tacos with some crumbled cotija or queso fresco cheese and cabbage slaw on top. It’d be a delicious dish to serve with some Mexican Rice and some sweet and sour pineapple sauce on the side.
How to reheat shrimp
The key to reheating shrimp is to heat it low and slow to preserve its tenderness. I recommend reheating this dish in the microwave or in a skillet:
- To reheat it in the microwave, place your shrimp and veggies along with a splash of water in a microwave-safe dish and cover with a lid. Microwave the shrimp at 50% power for 1 to 2 minutes or until heated to your liking.
- To reheat it on the stovetop, place the shrimp in a pan over medium heat. Stir your shrimp occasionally as it reheats and add a little water at a time if the shrimp appears to be getting rubbery or dry.
