Ok, now, let’s get back to this amazing shrimp recipe. Anything with garlic catches my eyes. When I saw this recipe has garlic and parmesan, I ran to the supermarket and got all the ingredients. The seasoning mixture is a blend of fresh garlic, dried oregano, grated parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Recipe is very straight forward and easy. There is only one tip I have for you. Since we’re using shell-on shrimps, I cut a shallow slit on the back of the shrimp through the shell to remove vein. Then, rub the seasoning on the slit of each shrimp to give as much flavor as possible. That will guarantee some well-seasoned shrimps. So simple, yet delicious! Can’t wait for you to try this.

Garlic-Parmesan Roasted Shrimp
- 1¼ pounds shell-on extra large shrimp
- Nonstick cooking spray
- ¾ pound small red potatoes (halved)
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (divided)
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 2 garlic cloves (minced)
- ½ teaspoon dried oregano
- ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
- ½ tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
- ½ lemon (cut into wedges)
- For the shrimp, remove the vein by using a small sharp knife to cut a shallow slit at the top back through the shell. Be careful when you cut as the shell is slippery. Transfer to a large bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and keep in the fridge.
- Preheat the oven to 450˚F (230˚C). Coat the roasting pan with non-stick cooking spray.
- In the pan, toss the potatoes with 1½ tablespoons of olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 15 minutes, then flip with a spatula to ensure even browning.
- In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1½ tablespoons of olive oil and the garlic, oregano, and Parmesan cheese, and season with salt and pepper. Add mixture to the shrimp. Toss well and make sure to massage the mixture into the open slit of the shrimp. Add the shrimp to the roasting pan. Roast for 5 minutes. Flip and roast for another 5 minutes, or until the shrimp is pink, firm and cooked through.
- Leave it to cool slightly, then garnish with parsley and lemon wedges, if using, and serve.
- I didn’t have a roasting pan, so I used a quarter baking sheet. The only problem I ran into was that the baking sheet has shallow rim, so I had to toss shrimp in a bowl instead of in a roasting pan.
- Rubbing the back of the shrimp with the seasoning will guarantee flavors get into the flesh instead of just the shell.
