Garlic Parmesan Roasted Shrimp

Garlic Parmesan Roasted Shrimp is a delicious dish that’s relatively simple to prepare.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound (about 450g) large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lemon wedges (optional, for serving)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Prepare the Shrimp: In a large bowl, toss the shrimp with olive oil, minced garlic, grated Parmesan cheese, chopped parsley, salt, and pepper until the shrimp are evenly coated.
  3. Arrange on a Baking Sheet: Spread the seasoned shrimp out in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Make sure they are not overcrowded to ensure even cooking.

  1. Roast in the Oven: Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and roast the shrimp for about 8-10 minutes, or until they are pink and cooked through. Be careful not to overcook them, as shrimp can become rubbery if cooked for too long.
  2. Serve: Once cooked, remove the shrimp from the oven and transfer them to a serving platter. Optionally, garnish with additional chopped parsley and serve with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over the shrimp before eating.
  3. Enjoy: Garlic Parmesan Roasted Shrimp can be served as a main dish with sides like rice, pasta, or salad, or it can be served as an appetizer for gatherings.

  1. Additional Tips:
    • You can adjust the amount of garlic, Parmesan cheese, and parsley according to your taste preferences.
    • If you prefer a bit of heat, you can add a pinch of red pepper flakes to the shrimp before roasting.
    • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese will give the best flavor, but you can also use pre-grated Parmesan if that’s what you have on hand.

This recipe should yield flavorful and succulent shrimp with a nice garlic Parmesan coating. Enjoy your meal!
