Description

This easy oven baked shrimp recipe has the best flavor and is totally hands off! It’s seasoned to perfection with garlic and herbs.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound large shrimp, deveined (tail on or off)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano*
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Lemon wedges
  • Chopped parsley or cilantro, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit or preheat the broiler.
  2. If frozen, thaw the shrimp
  3. Mince the garlic. Pat the shrimp dry. In a medium bowl, toss with the shrimp with the olive oil, garlic, oregano, onion powder, and kosher salt.
  4. Baked method: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the shrimp on a baking sheet in an even layer. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake until juicy and opaque, about 4 to 6 minutes depending on the size of the shrimp.
  5. Broiler method: Place the shrimp on a baking sheet in an even layer. Place the baking sheet in the broiler and broil for 3 to 6 minutes, until juicy and opaque, rotating the tray as necessary for even cooking. 
  6. Spritz with fresh lemon juice from lemon wedges, sprinkle with chopped parsley or cilantro, and serve immediately.

Notes

*Or vary the seasonings: try 1/2 teaspoon each smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and cumin.
