Sheet Pan Shrimp Boil with Merguez
Shrimp boil but in a sheet pan! The butter sauce is irresistible, the perfect ratio of spice and tangy zing.
Most recipes for shrimp boil do not have the addition of crispy potatoes. This one is taking it a step up by roasting potatoes first and then adding it to the mix. It gives this dish so much more texture and flavor!
Here are some tips and recommendations for substitutions:
- If you don’t have merguez, swap it for any sausage you prefer like Andouille sausage which is common with shrimp boil. A sausage with a bit of spice in it is preferred.
- You can swap the Idaho potatoes for any starchy potatoes you have on hand.
- Feel free to add more or less cayenne pepper depending on how spicy you like things.
- Salt to taste! I did not have to add any salt to the recipe because the cajun seasoning and old bay seasoning had plenty. Taste and add some if you think it needs more.
