One Pan Cajun Shrimp with Sweet Potatoes

One pan meals are my kinda meal.

When I set out to develop a few recipes that I could make on this one massive pan I bought, I went for:

  • Simple
  • Delicious and,
  • Nutritious (of course) 
One Pan Cajun Shrimp with Sweet Potatoes

First off, lemme tell you about this pan – it’s so amazing!

It’s huge, light and can take complete meals on it.

Which of course means minimal clean up baby, oh yeah. 

It’s made by NordicWare – their “bakers half sheet“.

I absolutely love this sheet because it’s great for dinner and of course, for cookies too.

I’m not much of a baker but when I do bake a few cookies now and then, this sheet makes it a lot easier and faster – one pan and done.

  1. This is nice and spicy! If you don't like heat, cut down on the cayenne. If you like more heat, turn it up by adding some hot chili flakes.
