This Garlic Butter shrimp with cauliflower rice is an easy sheet pan meal that can be on the table in less than 30 minutes. That makes this a low carb 30 minute meal! Just last week I posted 30 low carb 30 minute meals…check it out!
This yummy shrimp sheet pan dinner hits all of the high notes on flavor.
- It’s got shrimp…yaaas!
- It’s got butter…double yaaas!
- cauliflower…oh heck yes!
- garlic…come to mama!
These sheet pan dinners are all the rage right now, and I can definitely see why. I could have easily made this in a skillet, but who wants to babysit a skillet for 15 minutes when I can just throw everything on a sheet pan and stick it in the oven? Not this girl!
For the cauliflower rice in this garlic butter shrimp sheet pan dinner, I used already riced and frozen cauliflower. These little packages of awesome are such a major shortcut! I seriously loathe cutting up a head of cauliflower so these are such a lifesaver for us OCD folks! I mean cutting a head of cauliflower = super messy kitchen with tiny little cauliflower florets all over the floor. And the worst part? My dog doesn’t eat cauliflower so he leaves me to clean it up!
I also used frozen shrimp for this yummy sheet pan meal. Frozen shrimp are such a great budget friendly option…especially when you find it on sale!

- 2 lbs Large frozen shrimp thawed, peeled, and deveined
- 1 head Cauliflower riced
- 1/2 cup Salted butter Melted
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 2 tsp dried, chopped, parsley
- 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
Pre-heat oven to 400F
Cut the florets off of the stem of the cauliflower and discard the stem. Add the florets to a food processor and process until it resembles the texture of rice. Alternatively, you can buy already riced cauliflower in the fresh or frozen section of the supermarket. If your "rice" is frozen and in chunks, place in a microwave safe container and microwave in 30 second intervals until the chunks can break apart.
In a large bowl, add thawed and cleaned shrimp, butter, garlic, parsley, and black pepper. Mix to combine
Add the riced cauliflower to the bowl and mix to combine.
Pour the shrimp and cauliflower mixture onto a sheet pan, making sure the shrimp are in a single layer. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes
