Parmesan Garlic Roasted Shrimp

I was so happy that the menu for my mom’s 60th birthday bash turned out just as I’d planned. Other than buying way too much food (a bad habit of mine), everything was delicious and went off without a hitch.

I wanted to serve a classy appetizer that would be quick to make, yet very flavorful. I also wanted it be a food that people were comfortable with. Living in a small town, not everyone’s palette or knowledge of “new” foods is expansive. I think it’s important to know your audience and serve foods they are likely to love.

With all of those criteria in mind, I decided that shrimp was the answer. Not just any shrimp though – Parmesan Garlic Roasted Shrimp.

I figured I could prep the shrimp in the morning and have them on a sheet pan in the fridge, ready to pop in the oven when all the guests arrived. This way the appetizer could be served hot, plus the smell of roasting garlic and Parmesan would get tummies excited for what was about to come.

Let me show you how to make them.

How to Make Parmesan Garlic Roasted Shrimp:

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with oil or nonstick spray.

Place the shrimp in a single layer on the baking. Evenly distribute the olive oil, parmesan, garlic, oregano, and basil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss together with a spoon or your hands.

Place the pan of shrimp in the oven and roast the shrimp until just pink, firm, and cooked through. This should take 7-9 minutes. When done, sprinkle with lemon juice.

    I just made this shrimp appetizer for Christmas Eve and it was a hit. I love how it is similar to shrimp scampi minus all of the butter. It pairs so well with cocktail sauce. This will definitely be served in our home again.
