Easy Roasted Shrimp with Sweet Peppers

Simple + Delicious Oven Roasted Shrimp Recipe

Perfect for a quick meal or an easy appetizer, these Easy Roasted Shrimp with Sweet Peppers are packed with flavor.

best roasted shrimpWhole Foods Market asked if I’d create a summer-friendly recipe to celebrate the release of Golden State Cider‘s new Radical Paradise pineapple cider. Radical Paradise is made with whole pineapples, cinnamon sticks, piloncillo raw cane sugar, and it’s only available at Whole Foods Market stores in Northern California. NorCal gets the Giants AND pineapple cider. It’s an embarrassment of riches, really.

This easy roasted shrimp recipe is similar to my popular Oven Roasted Shrimp with Lemon and Garlic, which is a staple in our house. The sweet peppers and lemony tang are a fabulous match for the crisp, surprisingly dry Radical Paradise pineapple cider. Plus, the combination of colors is a knockout, so you can throw them on a platter for a party or BBQ and everyone will think you’re brilliant. I’m a big fan of dishes that take less than 20 minutes and are capable of blowing minds, aren’t you?

You could certainly cut this recipe in half for 1 lb of shrimp, but  I wouldn’t. These are delicious chilled too, so pop the leftovers (if there are any) in the fridge and make your coworkers jealous with tomorrow’s lunch.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds large (16-20 or 21-25 count) raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2-3 tablespoons good olive oil
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 5-6 sweet mini peppers, sliced into rings
  • 2 lemons, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large bowl, toss the shrimp with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, onions, peppers, lemon slices and the salt & pepper. Add a bit more olive oil to coat of needed.

Arrange the shrimp in 1 layer on a rimmed sheet pan, ensuring that the peppers and lemon slices are spread evenly throughout. Roast for 8 to 10 minutes, just until the shrimp are pink, firm and cooked through. Serve alone or over salad, pasta or rice.
