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 and Red Pepper. And this is such a quick-and-easy dinner that you could even make it when it’s warm outside because the oven will only be on for a few minutes!
Despite the red pepper in the recipe this is only slightly spicy, and if you serve it with a creamy sauce that will cool down your tastebuds. We made this with Aleppo Pepper (affiliate link) but use any kind of red pepper flakes if you don’t have that tasty pepper from the middle east. The shrimp was delicious with the Sour Cream Tahini Sauce that’s included in the recipe, but it would also be delicious with the Mustard-Horseradish Sauce I used with my Air Fryer Shrimp! I made this twice in a week and the shrimp disappeared quickly both times; hope you enjoy!
How to Make Spicy Roasted Shrimp with Garlic and Red Pepper:
(Scroll down for complete printable recipe including nutritional information.)
- Let shrimp thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then let them drain well in a colander. (I made this with 16-20 to a pound raw jumbo shrimp the first time and 21-25 to a pound large raw 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, Aleppo Pepper, and olive oil. I originally made with with some ground Ground Sumac (affiliate link) added as well, but the Sumac is definitely optional.
- 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, about 6-8 minutes. Small shrimp will take a little less time and jumbo shrimp slightly longer, but don’t overcook!
- Serve Spicy Roasted Shrimp hot and enjoy.
