Roasted Shrimp Cocktail

Here is a great appetizer to serve while you watch the Golden Globes this weekend. I adapted this recipe from Ina Garten with my mom, Chris Macca’s help.  Thanks Mom!

  • 1 lb. medium-sized fresh shrimp, peeled with tails left on
  • 1 -2 t. olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 1/2 C. spicy cocktail sauce
  • 1 T. freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 T. fresh dill, chopped

Heat the oven to 400 degrees.  Toss the shrimp in the olive oil and spread them out on a baking sheet.  Sprinkle them liberally with salt and pepper and orange zest.  Roast in the oven for 8-9 minutes, or until they are cooked through and sizzling.  Place the shrimp in a bowl and sprinkle the fresh dill over the top.  In a small bowl, combine the cocktail sauce with the orange juice and serve with the shrimp for dipping.  These are equally good served hot or at room temperature.

  1. Yum! I’ve never even considered roasting shrimp. What a great idea! 🙂

  2. I can eat embarrassing amounts of these. OK, I’m not embarrassed, but a certain wife might be.
