Party Shrimp

The sauce is so flavorful that you won't need a dip for this delicious Party Shrimp.

With "no silverware needed" recipes such as this one, tail-on shrimp work best.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground pepper
  • 1 pound uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined

Instructions

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first eight ingredients. Add shrimp; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. Drain shrimp, discarding marinade. Place shrimp on an ungreased baking sheet. Broil 4 inches from heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until shrimp turn pink.
  3. To avoid rubbery shrimp (the biggest pitfall with these little guys is overcooking), watch for signs they are done—the flesh will turn pink and firm. They'll keep cooking for a minute or two outside the oven.

Yield: about 2 1/2 dozen
