Directions

Roasted Shrimp

  • Peel and devein shrimp (thaw first, if frozen), leaving tails in place. In a large bowl, combine lemon juice, olive oil and the kosher salt. Add shrimp; toss well. Set aside 10 minutes, tossing once or twice. Transfer shrimp to a 15x10x1-inch baking pan and spread evenly. Roast in a 400° oven until just pink and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Cool to room temperature; cover and refrigerate overnight or until well-chilled. (Meanwhile, make sauces.) Serve with extra lemon wedges if desired.
