Roasted Shrimp Cocktail
Roasting shrimp elevates the flavor of the shrimp and brings this simple, classic dish to a whole new level!
12 to 15-count shrimp
fresh ground black pepper
your favorite cocktail sauce
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Peel and devein the shrimp, leaving the tails on. (Or take 'em off if you prefer!)
Toss them in a bowl with the Olive Oil, Salt & Pepper. Spread them in a single layer on a sheet pan.
Roast for about 8 minutes, flipping once, just until pink and firm and cooked through. Set aside to cool.
Serve with lemon wedges and your favorite cocktail sauce.
These can be made up to a day in advance. Store in a glass, air tight container.
