Roasted Shrimp with Green Goddess Dressing

This recipe is absolutely fabulous!  Of course the shrimp is tastier when it’s freshly caught like we were able to enjoy in Florida, but it’s still great with shrimp you can buy at your local grocery store or specialty food store like Whole Foods or Fresh Market.  The secret is the green goddess dressing though – to die for! My guests were eating it by the spoonful! It’s of course also fabulous as a salad dressing.

Shrimp Ingredients:

2 lbs large shrimp (14 to16 shrimp per pound)
1 TBSP good olive oil
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Peel and devein the shrimp, leaving the tails on.
  3. Place them on a sheet pan with the olive oil, salt, and pepper and spread them in one layer.
  4. Roast for 8 to 10 minutes, just until pink and firm and cooked through. Set aside to cool.
