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.
  • 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
  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.
