Easy Roasted Shrimp

I’ve been making these easy roasted shrimp for my husband and myself since we moved in together 6 years ago.

They’re so simple, healthy, and yet delicious.  I’ve used them to top salads, pasta, rice dishes, and often just eat them on their own with a roasted vegetable or two.Easy Roasted Shrimp | A Nerd CooksYou’ll need:

  • 1 lb raw medium/large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • juice of 1 lemon

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside.

In a large zip top bag, combine the raw shrimp, olive oil, salt, pepper, and lemon juice.  Toss it all around until the shrimp are well coated.

Lay the shrimp, in a single layer, on the lined baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.  The shrimp will be opaque and firm to the touch.

Eat them as a main course on their own, as an appetizer (roasted shrimp cocktail, anyone?), or incorporate them into whatever dish you’d like.
