    • How To Roast Shrimp in the Oven
    • Serves 4 to 6
    • What You Need
    • Ingredients
    • 1 pound medium-sized (17-21 count) shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails on
    • Extra-virgin olive oil
    • Coarse kosher salt
    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • Equipment
    • Colander
    • Large bowl
    • Baking sheet
    • Instructions
    • Heat the oven to 400°F: Heat the oven to 400°F with a rack placed in the middle of the oven.
    • If frozen, thaw the shrimp: Place the shrimp you want to cook in a colander in the sink and run cold water over them for about 5 minutes. Toss the shrimp occasionally to make sure they are all exposed to the cold water.
    • The shrimp will bend easily when thawed: You will know that the shrimp is thawed and ready when they are no longer frozen solid but soft, easily bendable, and slightly translucent. This will only take a few minutes. Pat the shrimp dry with a paper towel.
    • Toss the shrimp with olive oil: Lightly drizzle the shrimp with olive oil.
    • Season with salt and pepper: Sprinkle generously with salt and freshly-ground black pepper.
    • Toss to coat with oil and seasonings: Toss lightly with your hands to ensure the shrimp is coated with oil and seasonings.
    • Spread on a baking sheet: The shrimp should be in a single layer on a baking sheet. The shrimp should fit on the baking sheet in a single layer, with plenty of space between the shrimp.
    • Bake for 6 to 8 minutes: Bake until the shrimp turns from blue-grey and translucent to white and pink and opaque. Remove and eat promptly.
    • Recipe Notes
    • Shrimp should be cooked immediately after thawing in cold water.
