I have tried all sorts of ways of making shrimp in the few years that I’ve been making shrimp. But after watching Ina Garten, I decided to give her recipe a try. It’s absolutely the easiest and most delicious one I’ve tried. No fussing, just shrimp, olive oil, salt, pepper, oven. Of course, shrimp has to be fresh too.
This is where Fabian Seafood of Galveston Texas comes in. You see, a friend of mine has been telling me about shrimp from the back of a truck for nearly a decade. It always sounds like someone is selling stolen goods or spoiled goods so I never tried it. But then I noticed the buzz about it in the local blogosphere with the Julia of Yulinka Cooks and Peef & Lo so I figured they were safe. I actually bought shrimp from Fabian a couple times now, and tried different things, but this is the dish that turned out. 😉
Shrimp (I used about 1 lb large, but you can use as much as you want)
Salt, pepper, olive oil
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
2. Clean your shrimp (Fabian’s shrimp isn’t cleaned, but it’s ok, it’s delicious).
3. Place the shrimp on a baking sheet, drizzle olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Mix well so all the shrimp is coated evenly with the mixture.
4. Bake for about 5-7 minutes, dpending on your oven and size of shrimp.
