Roasted Shrimp

(Photo courtesy Food Network)

I was out this evening for a small get together. My friend Andrea made these supremely, deliciously, sublime shrimp. I mean they were to die for! I asked what she did and she told me that they were Ina Garten's recipe. So I came right home and Googled it. I will make it over and over again. It is also just too good not to share with you all!


1/2 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
For the dressing:nocoupons
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon minced capers
1 teaspoon minced gherkins
1 tablespoon sweet pickles
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Pinch kosher salt
Pinch freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Place the shrimp on a sheet pan and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Pour the olive oil and juice over the shrimp, and roast in the oven for 5 to 6 minutes.

We made this same recipe of Ina's for my daughter's graduation party in December and they got rave reviews and were so easy!!! I bought the frozen shrimp and it worked great! We used a red cocktail type sauce with ours, but your sauce sounds great too. Have a great day. Love & blessings from NC!
