1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning optional
Easy Ten Minute Roasted Shrimp on a white plate garnished with lemon with cocktail sauce
Place the shrimp on a baking sheet with sides; then top with the olive oil and lemon juice. Use your hands and toss the shrimp making sure that they are uniformly covered with the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and Old Bay Seasoning, if desired.
Roast for 8-10 minutes or just until they are opaque and cooked through. Do not overcook. Cooking time can vary depending on the size of the shrimp. Watch carefully; they can go from cooked to overcooked in a matter of seconds.
*As a general rule, two pounds of shrimp will serve 4-6 people as an entree. If you are serving shrimp as an appetizer and plan to have 4-5 other appetizers, plan on 3-4 shrimp per person.
