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.

Cool to room temperature; cover and refrigerate overnight or until well-chilled. (Meanwhile, make sauces.) Serve with extra lemon wedges if desired.
