OVEN ROASTED SHRIMP COCKTAIL
2-pounds large shrimp (U12/15), peeled and deveined (tail left on)
3 tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lemon zest (about 1 lemon)
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 cup cocktail sauce
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Combine the shrimp in a large bowl with the olive oil, Italian seasoning, salt, lemon zest and juice in a large bowl and toss until the shrimp are fully and evenly coated.
Place the shrimp on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes until the shrimp are pink and curled. Let cool to room temperature and then chill fully until ready to serve (great to make a day in advance). Serve with cocktail sauce for dipping and lemon wedges for squeezing.
