Roasted Shrimp Cocktail

I’ve made this dish a couple of times already, and it was just as delicious this time!  I will never boil shrimp again!  The roasting makes a big difference.  Simple, easy, and flavorful. Thanks so much Ina.




For the shrimp:

  • 2 pounds (12 to 15-count) shrimp
  • 1 tablespoon good olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Peel and devein the shrimp, leaving the tails on. Place them on a sheet pan with the olive oil, salt, and pepper and spread them in 1 layer. Roast for 8 to10 minutes, just until pink and firm and cooked through. Set aside to cool.
