You don’t have to wait to have company over to enjoy this shrimp. We actually enjoy this recipe for dinner. It’s a great main dish what pairs nicely with rice or even just with a simple veggie or salad.
I bought the shrimp peeled and deveined if you’re going to peel the shrimp yourself you’ll want to allow an additional ten or fifteen minutes to you prep time.
In a bowl combine olive oil, parmesan cheese, oregano, basil, onion powder, salt and pepper. Then gently toss the shrimp in the mixture to coat.
Next, spread the shrimp in a single layer on a baking sheet that’s been treated with nonstick spray.
Place the shrimp in a 400º oven for 6 – 8 minutes or until the shrimp is firm and pink Then, squeeze the juice of one lemon over the shrimp and garnish with parsley.
I served it on a platter but I think it would just as pretty piled in a big bowl with some wonderful cocktail sauce for dipping.
