This Roasted Shrimp appetizer was originally featured in Cooking Light Magazine many years ago.

Although I’ve lost track of the pages, I was able to locate the Roasted Shrimp dish on The internet is fantastic! My grocery shop had shell-on, deveined giant shrimp, which worked well. There’s no need to clean anything else! If you need to devein your shrimp at home, just cut the shell with scissors, leaving the vein out, and discard. YouTube also has several useful videos!

Step 1
Fill a big cast iron pan halfway with salt. Make a uniform layer out of it. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Heat the salt for around 30 minutes.

Place the shrimp in a single layer on top of the heated salt.

Return to the oven for a further 5-8 minutes, depending on the size of the shrimp.

Step 2
While the shrimp is cooking, combine the other ingredients in a mixing bowl and serve with the shrimp for dipping.

This is my favorite way to cook shrimp. If you like the shrimp-lemon combo, this would be a great recipe to try. You can cook it like a pasta dish. You can make it like a salad. It also works really well for appetizers.. Read more about sweet chili shrimp marinade and let us know what you think.
