Oven Roasted Shrimp

Tuesday, January 2, 2018

Cold weather makes us miss the summer season as well as seafood. Here is a recipe for a quick and easy oven-made shrimp that tastes great in any weather.

This recipe works well with seafood blackening seasoning or Old Bay. Or even just salt and pepper and maybe some paprika if you have none of these handy. Blackening seasoning tends to have more sugar and less salt than Old Bay and therefore can be used generously, whereas if you are using Old Bay use it more sparingly. If your seasoning mix doesn't already have garlic added, you can add 1 clove crushed garlic into the mix for improved flavor.

Oven Roasted Shrimp
Serves 3-4

You will need:
2 tbsp Olive oil
1 1/2 lb uncooked unpeeled shrimp (25/36 per pound, can be frozen)
1 lemon (half for juicing, half for wedges)
2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
Blackening seasoning or Old Bay, to taste
Optional: 1 clove garlic


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and grease a foil-lined baking sheet with oil. If using frozen shrimp, thaw the shrimp fully. Peel and devein the shrimp. Drain of any excess water, pat dry with paper towels and place in a bowl. Pour juice 1/2 of the lemon over the shrimp and mix, then sprinkle the shrimp with the blackening or Old Bay seasoning. Add garlic if using. Add the parsley. Mix well.

2. Place the shrimp in a single layer onto the baking sheet and bake until pink and cooked through, about 8-10 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges from the remaining half lemon, as well as cocktail sauce and horseradish. Or to make it a meal and serve over rice.
