So is it just me, or do you see shrimp as an appetizer at someone’s house and think, “Oh, classy!”
Shrimp isn’t super fancy, I don’t think, but I do feel like a shrimp appetizer is stepping things up.
And always welcome. People love shrimp! People go crazy for shrimp!
It’s a great protein and it cooks incredibly quickly. Shrimp is also really versatile because it can take on the flavor of whatever you season it with.
And today I’m sharing spicy roasted shrimp, which is super flavorful and absolutely delicious thanks to the spices we add.
(Also, roasting is one of my favorite ways to cook shrimp, even just for shrimp cocktail. It adds so much more flavor than boiling them.)
Bonus: this recipe is just 3 main ingredients!
We toss the raw shrimp with a mixture of Cajun seasoning and cayenne (plus salt and olive oil of course) and roast them in the oven until they are tender and juicy and absolutely delicious….
