Sheet Pan Shrimp

This sheet pan shrimp (prawn) is deliciously buttery and succulent. Roasting in the oven means not needing to watch the stove or worry about oil splatters.  Recently I bought a compact baking pan (disclosure: amazon affliate), which is exactly half the size of a standard oven baking tray. It is really handy for making smaller portions (meals for 1 or 2 anyone?) and as a bonus for me, food-tography is much easier ;) For bigger servings, use a standard baking tray & double up the recipe measurements accordingly.
