Sheet pan dinners are some of my favorite recipes. Quick to make and so easy to clean up! The only tricky part is that you are limited by the size of the sheet pan. So for this shrimp stir fry recipe, I used two pounds of larger sized shrimp so that it would truly feed a family of four.
If you are using smaller sized shrimp, you may need to reduce the overall weight of the shrimp so the pan is not overcrowded or make the shrimp stir fry on two sheet pans.
