Salt and Pepper Shrimp
Shrimp are a quick, simple and delicious addition to a healthy meal! They are perfect along with a few steamed or baked veggies. They are even good the next day right out of the fridge! What's not to like?
What You'll Need:
Extra virgin olive oil
Freshly cracked black pepper
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Rinse and dry shrimp. Drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil. (2 pounds to 1 tablespoon ratio.) Sprinkle with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Bake for 3-5 minutes just until shrimp turn pink. (Note: Don't overcook or the shrimp will become rubbery. Keep an eye on them and as soon as they turn pink bring them out!)
How is that for fast, easy and delicious?
Notes: Jumbo shrimp work the best. Don't want to heat up the oven? You could easily do this in a steamer as well. Just steam for 4-5 minutes until pink. You could also put them on a skewer and do them outside on the grill. The guy at the fish counter said you should figure one pound of shrimp per persons served so I bought a pound for Alexis and I, but it could have easily fed 3 or 4 grown people along with the steamed veggies.
