- Pattypan Squash: A pattypan squash resembles a flying saucer because of its round shape and scalloped edges.

HOW TO MAKE HONEY GLAZED SHRIMP SHEET PAN: STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the honey, coconut aminos, ½ teaspoon of onion powder and sea salt and white pepper to taste. You will use half of this marinade to marinate the shrimp. Save the other half for cooking the shrimp.
Place the shrimp in a medium size glass bowl. Add ½ of the marinade and toss well to combine. Cover the bowl and place it in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes. To make the shrimp even more flavorful you can marinate them up to 8 hours, or overnight. Pour the rest of the marinade into a glass jar and refrigerate.
Preheat the oven to 375-degrees F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add the vegetables to the baking sheet and toss with the coconut oil. Season with the remaining onion powder and sea salt and white pepper to taste. Toss again. Arrange the vegetables in a single layer. Roast for 15 minutes. Remove the sheet pan from the oven. Flip the vegetables over. Return to oven and roast for 15 more minutes.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven. Use a spatula or tongs to carefully move the vegetables over to one side to make room for the shrimp. Add the shrimp to the baking sheet. Discard the used marinade. Drizzle the shrimp with the remaining unused marinade in the jar. Return the baking sheet to the oven and bake for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the shrimp are pink and firm to the touch.
Serve the roasted vegetables and shrimp with lemon wedges and garnished with cilantro. This goes well served over some fluffy cooked white rice.
- Shrimp. Shrimp curls when cooked because the muscle proteins contrast. The curl of a perfectly cooked shrimp is shaped like a "c," whereas the curl of an overdone shrimp is shaped like a "o."
- Squash. One of the most adaptable crop varieties is squash. There are two primary types: winter squash, which grows longer on the vine and often has a stiff shell, and summer squash, which is harvested when it is still immature.
- Cipollini onion: This sweet, round, flat onion is prized for its long shelf life and sweet flavor.
- Coconut Aminos: Acts as a soy-free and gluten-free alternative to soy sauce that provides a similar taste without the risk of allergic reactions.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long do you cook shrimp in a pan?
Shrimp should be pan-cooked for 2-3 minutes on each side, flipping once halfway through. This will usually take 4 to 6 minutes, depending on the size of your shrimp and how many you have in the pan.
What goes with shrimp for dinner?
I like to pair shrimp with balsamic grilled asparagus, wild rice salad, pesto spiralized zucchini "zoodles," corn on the cob or a fresh salad.
What temperature should a sheet pan be for dinner?
This will depend on what ingredients are in your sheet pan dinner recipe. Generally anywhere from a 375-degree F. oven to 450°F (232°C) will work well.
