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.
