This month for #Fish Friday Foodies the theme is “One Pan Dinners” using fish or seafood. For my part I decided to do Thai Lava Shrimp, which is a take-off  of a stir-fry I had for lunch at a local Thai restaurant. And when I had it, the topic had already come up for this event but had not thought of what to make. And I wondered- why can’t I just make this on a sheet pan? So I  did.

Thai Lava Shrimp

It’s  easy enough, since they basically just used sweet chilli sauce. Theirs had peppers and pineapple as well, but also a few carrots and if I recall right, something like snow peas. I decided to go for asparagus since it is very spring-like, and I do like that veggie with Thai  flavors. I also threw in a few limes,  since they soften up nicely during the bake, and if you want to  balance the sweet of the chilli sauce you can just squeeze it on. Also making an appearance is Thai hot peppers, but it’s not really necessary if you don’t want it spicy.

I do like the baked pineapple. With the chilli sauce it gives an almost Hawaiian feel,  and the ambience of lava. I served mine with some rice from the steamer (which isn’t done in the baking pan) so you do have to cook two things. Unless you want it without, but I like the rice.

There is a two stage cooking process, since the veggies take a few minutes longer than the shrimp, but very easy to do. If your shrimp already come p&d, you can have this on the table in thirty minutes. And pretty easy cleanup  too. I hope you enjoy!
