At my house it’s unseasonably cool and gloomy today, and on a day like this I would happily turn on the oven for these Spicy Roasted Shrimp with Garlic, Sumac, and Aleppo Pepper. But soon enough it will be too hot to think about roasting anything, so if you like shrimp I urge you to hurry and try this ultra-easy and quick recipe before the hot weather gets here!

Despite the Aleppo Pepper in the recipe this is only slightly spicy, and the Sumac adds a delicious citrusy note that’s great with the shrimp. (Read here about Sumac if you’re not familiar with it; definitely it’s one of my favorite spices!) You can eat this with a squeeze of lemon for a Paleo version, or try the Sour Cream and Tahini Sauce that’s shown in the background. I made this twice in a week and the shrimp disappeared quickly both times; hope you enjoy!

Let shrimp thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then let them drain well in a colander.  (I made this with 16-20 to a pound jumbo shrimp the first time and 21-25 to a pound large shrimp the second time, and both were great.) Put a paper towel on the cutting board, spread out the shrimp, and pat dry with another paper towel.

Whisk together the crushed garlic, ground Sumac, Aleppo Pepper, and olive oil. Put the shrimp in a bowl and toss with the mixture of olive oil and spices.

Spread the shrimp out on a large baking sheet that you’ve sprayed with non-stick spray. Roast in an oven that’s preheated to 400F/200C for about 6-8 minutes, or until the shrimp are pink and firm but not hard.  Small shrimp will take a little less time and jumbo shrimp slightly longer, but don’t overcook!

  1. Buttoni, I agree, Sumac is so delicious!

  2. This sounds delicious, and I have those spices on hand. I learned to love sumac when we lived in Iran 2 years when I was a child. Lovely taste, that one.

  3. I don't think there's anything else that can quite capture the flavor of Sumac, although Za'atar contains Sumac if you have some of that. If not, I think this recipe would still be flavorful with something like smoked paprika or sharp paprika instead of sumac. I might use a bit less, because the flavor of the sumac isn't quite as intense. Hope that works for you!

  4. Looks great – any ideas on what might be a good substitute for sumac? I'd like to try it out soon and don't have any.

  5. Un secondo piatto semplice e gustoso!!
