it’s FWO which means we’re dishing up something good in the kitchen. when it comes to recipes, i like easy and healthy. Sheet Pan Mediterranean Shrimp fits the bill. it’s loaded with veggies, juicy shrimp, and topped with fresh herbs and feta cheese. when i was a young mom, one-pan meals came to the rescue on more than one occasion. if you’re short on time or just want a delicious summer meal Sheet Pan Meditteranean Shrimp offers lean protein and veggies. what’s better than that on a hot summer evening?
of course, our favorite canine showed up for his weekly gig. his buddy pax was over, so he was tuckered out when it was time for photos. but he prevailed since there’s always extra treats in store. the cocktail this week is a Blood Orange Mojito although yours truly couldn’t find any blood oranges in town, so i improvised. mojitos have to be one of the most refreshing cocktails, and i love to serve them during the summer months.
a few tips for the Sheet Pan Mediterranean Shrimp:
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Zest the lemon into a large bowl. Add 1 tablespoon lemon juice (reserve the lemon's remaining juice for the shrimp and serving), oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and oregano. Whisk to combine.
Add the artichokes, asparagus, tomatoes, and onion. Toss by hand to coat.
Transfer the mixture to a large rimmed baking sheet and spread it into an even layer. Place in the oven and bake until the tomatoes begin to soften and release their juices, about 12 minutes.
While the vegetables are cooking, in the same bowl you used for the vegetables, stir together 1 tablespoon lemon juice, oil, oregano, red pepper, garlic, and salt. Add the shrimp and toss to coat.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven and add the shrimp. With a large spatula, stir to combine the shrimp and vegetables together. Spread back into an even layer.
Return to the oven and continue baking until the shrimp are pink, opaque, and cooked through, 6 to 10 minutes more depending upon the size of your shrimp. Do not overcook! As soon as the shrimp look opaque and pink, they are cooked.
Remove the pan from the oven. Sprinkle with the feta and parsley add the olives and squeeze the remaining 1 to 2 tablespoons lemon juice over the top. Season with a pinch of additional salt and black pepper to taste. Serve warm. This dish pairs nicely with rice or baguette slices.
i think you’re gonna love this summer recipe! and this adorable outfit from Madewell. every year i’m on the hunt for white denim. a pair that’s comfy with a beautiful fit. white or light denim can be unforgiving and visually adds pounds. one reason many of us shy away from wearing them. if that’s you, let me introduce the vintage straight from Madewell. the fabric is amazing, and the jeans fit like a glove. it’s recommended to size down one size, but i stuck with a size 29 as i loath a snug fit during the summer months. there’s definitely extra room in the waist, but that’s okay with me. if you’re tired of skinny jeans or want to test the waters with white denim, i guarantee you will love these. the straight leg with slightly frayed hem adds a modern touch.
the sky’s the limit when it comes to tops to wear with white jeans. anything goes. since i’m a sucker for stripes, i chose a modern linen tank that’s certain to beat the heat. if you like sleeves, try this tee or this tee. a simple outfit demands simple accessories, so i chose stud earrings and link bracelet from Julie Vos. add a pair of brown sandals (old, similar here and here), and this girl is ready for dinner.
In a cocktail shaker layer the cut lime wedges, and mint leaves. Pour in the simple syrup and use a a muddler to muddle the mixture for about 30 seconds. Add the rum, strain in the blood orange juice and top with ice. Stir or shake. Strain into an ice filled low ball cocktail glass. Top with club soda or mineral water, stir, then garnish.

Hi Beth, Love your shrimps recipe
And your outfit!!
Have a nice weekend.
thanks, you too!
You get younger all the time. This is a perfect summer outfit. Oscar does look beautiful but I think he might be opposed to posing today. He had rather visit.
It is shrimp season here on the Coast. So,I’m hoping for some for my freezer. Love to try that dish.
it’s the micro-needling! after two sessions i can see the difference! i think you will like this easy peasy recipe. enjoy!
You look wonderful. I can’t wait to try the shrimp dish. I really like that heart shaped dish too. Pats to Oscar and Ollie too.
oscar and ollie say “thank you” enjoy your weekend!
The Mediterranean Shrimp looks delicious! I’m making this tonight but I think I’ll substitute the shrimp with scallops. I added shrimp to my fresh gazpacho for last night’s refreshing dinner – yum!
that’s a perfect substitute! i love to use whatever i have on hand. bon appetite!
Thank you for recipes! Honestly it is so good to see something beside Nordstrom
sale!! By the time I can buy everything I like (or think I need😊) is out of stock. Why bother?? Thanks again, love your smiles and pep.
i’m so glad you stopped by! love the Nordstrom sale but we dish up other content as well. have a great weekend!
I’ve found that Madewell jeans have too much fabric in the crotch area & in the seat. I wear a 27. They’re a beautiful jean but that’s a dealbreaker for me. Do you find the fit a bit odd? In the pictures it looks like you have a bit of fabric bunch also.
if the crotch doesn’t sit right that’s because the waist is too big. if i took the jeans to a tailor and have the waist nipped in it would eliminate the problem.
