Garlic & Herb Roasted Shrimp
Recipe courtesy of Ina Garten
Total: 40 min
Active: 20 min
Yield: 4 servings
Level: Easy


1/4 pound (1 stick) unsalted butter
2 tablespoons good olive oil
2 tablespoons minced garlic (6 cloves)
2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary leaves
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 large lemons
2 pounds (8- to 10-count) shrimp, peeled with the tails on
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
4 slices country bread, toasted


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Melt the butter over low heat in a medium (10-inch) saute pan. Add the olive oil, garlic, rosemary, red pepper flakes, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper and cook over low heat for one minute. Off the heat, zest one of the lemons directly into the butter mixture.

Meanwhile, arrange the shrimp snugly in one layer in a large (12-inch) round ovenproof sauté pan (or 10 × 13-inch baking dish) with only the tails overlapping. Pour the butter mixture over the shrimp. Sprinkle with the sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Slice the ends off the zested lemon, cut five (1/4-inch-thick) slices, and tuck them among the shrimp. Roast for 12 to 15 minutes, just until the shrimp are firm, pink, and cooked through. Cut the remaining lemon in half and squeeze the juice onto the shrimp. Serve hot with the toasted bread for dipping into the garlic butter.

  1. Oh wow, it looks good and easy! I love the lemon added in different ways! Yummy! Thanks for sharing. I'm definately trying this one❤

  2. This would be a great marinade for chicken as well. I love how her recipes are pretty basic yet flavorful, yet you can add more to it. For example, I use this recipe as a base, once I added saffron to the dressing l, another time i spiced the shrimp with pesto as well, once I seasoned the shrimp with with jerk seasoning, then added the dressing. Make sure you have good sourdough toast with this.
