Lemon Garlic Roasted Shrimp

I remember watching some kid devour shrimp cocktail at a restaurant a few years ago and someone commented, “KIDS GO CRAZY FOR SHRIMP!”

um.

Not mine. 

But then something happened a few weeks ago. My son tried some buffalo wing style shrimp (oof) and loved it. Now he wants shrimp when we’re out to eat and hogs all the shrimp tempura. Be careful what you wish for 😉

But we’re into shrimp right now. I am not getting overly excited but

OH

MY

GOD

I

CAN

MAKE

SHRIMP

FOR

MY

FAMILY

NOW

and everyone will eat it.

If you think I’m overreacting, I just sat here and thought about it.

It’s been 9 years since I’ve been able to make a shrimp dish for my whole family.

I suppose this is when I chime in with a Better late than never.

My Mom used to make this dish. Of course, she did, it was one of the simplest recipes from her beloved Ina Garten!  I love that food can sometimes feel like a hug from your Mom. I sure needed it the past few weeks.

Oh, and did I mention this sauce on this dish? It’s lemon buttery garlicky goodness. You’re going to want to sop up every last bit with bread. Promise.

Ingredients are gathered.

You can serve this a few ways. Cooper had his over rice. Casey had his over leftover pasta.

Lemon Garlic Roasted Shrimp

recipe adapted from Make it Ahead by Ina Garten

  • 1 large lemon
  • fresh chopped parsley, for garnish

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Melt the butter over low heat in a medium (10-inch) saute pan. Add the olive oil, garlic,  red pepper flakes, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper and cook over low heat for one minute. Remove from heat and add the zest one of one lemon into the butter mixture.

Arrange the shrimp snugly in one layer in a 10 × 13-inch baking dish with only the tails overlapping. Pour the butter mixture over the shrimp. Season with salt and pepper. Slice the ends off the zested lemon, cut into 5 slices, and tuck them among the shrimp. Roast for 12 to 15 minutes, just until the shrimp are firm, pink, and cooked through.  Sprinkle top with chopped parsley for garnish. Serve hot with the toasted bread for dipping into the garlic butter.

    I licked the screen! YUM!

  • Sara

    My husband is allergic to shrimp :*( But I think this sauce and technique could work with a white fish, maybe snapper? Or even salmon?

    Also, my 2 yo started eating roasted broccoli last night and I was like OMGOMGOMGOMG IT’S HAPPENING!!! :D:D:D

  • Janet Fazio

    would be great with zoodles too!

  • Heidi

    Love the subtle Ina shoutout in the recipe… “2 Tablespoons GOOD olive oil.”

    I always giggle when she says that on her show, as if her next sentence would be “don’t use some olive oil you’d get at the gas station.”

  • Kimberly

    I left you the heart eyes on your Instagram story last night while you were making this. I cannot wait to make this myself! Thank you!

  • Jean

    I just happened to make this last night and used blood orange juice along with the lemon juice for a little twist. So good!

  • Alicia A

    That is the most exciting thing, when it comes to your child liking a new food. My 12yo can’t get enough broccoli now! She’s the one with the McDonalds tattoo!
    (just joking, I never thought she would eat anything else.)

  • Greg

    I plan to make the recipe. Unfortunately, I like printing a hardcopy ro make notes on. The recipe’s “Print Recipe” button is giving me a 404 “Page not found” error. Am I doing something wrong? I’ve not had this issue with your other recipes. 🙁

    • Tracy

      I have an error that I have to fix. Gotta book time with my designer. It will be fixed soon. Sorry for the issue, Greg.

  • Morgan

    YUM!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jenna

    I need to make this! I’m scared of cooking (over-cooking) shrimp so I never do it. But this looks so good!

    • Tracy

      It’s not like overcooking lobster. No one ever forgives you when that happens. Shrimp is cool!

  • Emily of The Three Bite Rule

    So you’re telling me there’s still time for shrimp with my 3-year-old? hahaha This sounds delicious and what I want right now. Love love love that you each had it a slightly different way.

  • Meghan

    Hi Tracy! This looks great, I’m running a half marathon next weekend, and I’m going to make this over rice for my dinner the night before. Do you think I could do this with frozen shrimp from TJ’s instead of fresh with the tale on? It’s more economical for this single lady.

  • Judith

    Would this be OK to have for leftovers? I am always kinda paranoid about eating leftover shrimp.

  • Cate

    OMG
    Ok, you people who haven’t made this yet? What are you waiting for? I figured 4 out of 5 family members who eat shrimp was good enough and made it and…see above. Firstly, it took less than half hour to get this gold on my table with a side of French green beans and rice. Second, I forgot about the sad state of our world for the ten minutes I was flipping over this dish. After the pan was empty, I went to town with toasted bread and sopped up that pan juice like there was no tomorrow. This is rotation material folks. Like, forever rotation until the end of time. Thank you T, for an incredible recipe. My only question is, when are you gonna do a cookbook? I’ll be first in line.

  • Laura

    Made this for dinner last night and it was SO GOOD! We enjoyed it with a side of roasted parmesan asparagus and crusty bread. Thank you for your consistently delicious recipes.

  • Poltava
