COOKING RECIPES

PARTY SHRIMP

INGREDIENTS:

— 2 pounds (ca. 907 g) large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined

— 1 package Italian dressing mix

— 3 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil

— 1 tablespoon paprika

— 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

— 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

— Pinch of salt

INSTRUCTIONS:

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, then spray with cooking spray (the foil isn’t required, just for easy clean-up). Arrange shrimp in a single layer on a baking sheet, discarding marinade. Broil shrimp on top rack of the oven for 5-7 minutes or until pink and cooked through, flipping once halfway through cooking time.

Serve hot or at room temperature with cocktail sauce if desired.

NOTES:

As always, be sure to leave your oven door ajar when broiling.

Don’t crowd the shrimp on the pan – make sure they’re not touching. Shrimp get testy in crowds and do not play well with others {snort} also, they won’t cook right if you shove too many on the pan.

I usually double or triple this recipe, so I cook it a little differently than described above, rotating pans in the oven, to make things go a little quicker and easier. I broil one pan until beautiful (without flipping) then move to a lower rack, adding a second pan under the broiler and repeat. The residual heat in the oven ensures all the shrimp cook through, and I don’t have to flip anything.
