High heat and herb-infused oil make this simple dish some of the juiciest, crunchiest shrimp you’ll ever have the pleasure of eating. Serve the shrimp as an appetizer, or as an entree with salad and crusty bread. The shrimp also would be phenomenal over pasta.

  • 1/4 cup
    olive oil
  • 12 sprigs
  • 2 whole cloves
    garlic, peeled
  • 2 pounds
    large shrimp, (about 18 per pound), peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons
    balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    ground black pepper
  1. Pour olive oil into a 9-by-13-inch baking dish or similarly sized roasting pan.
  2. Add thyme sprigs and garlic to the dish. Set the dish in the oven and preheat the oven to 450 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Lay shrimp over the thyme and garlic, then roast until pink and firm, about 8 minutes for medium shrimp (about 30 per pound) or 10 minutes for large shrimp (about 18 per pound), tossing gently two or three times.
  4. Remove baking dish from the oven, and stir in vinegar, salt, and pepper. Serve.

Variation: To make Rosemary-Roasted Shrimp, substitute 5 rosemary sprigs for the thyme, and 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar for the balsamic.
