  • Summary

    The citrusy dressing makes this dish a standout, and there's plenty extra to be sopped up with rice or crusty bread. Cooking shrimp in their shells keeps them juicy and tender. It all makes for casual finger food that requires plenty of napkins — which is part of the fun.

    Ingredients

    • 3 lb jumbo shrimp in shell (7 or 8 per pound)
    • 4 large garlic cloves
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    • 3/4 cup olive oil
    • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh oregano (from 1 bunch)
    • 3 lemons, each cut into 6 wedges
