Roasted Shrimp

Shrimp cooked any way but fried is my favorite meal but roasting shrimp may just take first place, now that I have tried this recipe of Dr. Hyman’s. Only three simple ingredients added to the shrimp makes an unbelievably delicious dish.

A different way to prepare shrimp, roasting results in plump, tasty shrimp with no dryness. Very little olive oil is absorbed during roasting. Serve as a first course or as an hors d’oeuvre.
Ingredients
  • 1 pound large (21 to 25 count) shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails left on if desired
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F
  2. Place the shrimp in a baking dish just big enough to hold them in a single layer. Toss with the extra-virgin olive oil, salt and crushed red pepper
  3. Roast the shrimp for about 25 minutes, until pink and firm to the touch, turning them twice during cooking.

  1. Hi CaFe. Love your new website. Looks great!
    Wonderful to see you eating the right foods and taking care of yourself. Healthy food = Healthy mind = Healthy spirit. All the best!

  2. Thanks Ross! And welcome to my site! Isn’t it wonderful that I can still enjoy shrimp! I know that will help this ‘diet’ plan work. Honestly, I don’t know why I didn’t start doing this years ago! 19.5 pounds so far!!

  3. Looks delicious. I bet this roasted shrimp, once chilled, would make a nice shrimp cocktail. Served with a tangy sauce of tomato paste, horseradish, and lemon juice.
