Does anyone else have trouble coming up with meals that will make all of the people who gather around their dinner table happy? We all have different dietary needs and likes and dislikes and that makes it challenging to find just one meal that pleases everyone.
I do have one go-to dinner that is so versatile, I know everyone will love it. Roasted Garlic Shrimp. It's so easy to prepare - I make it for my family of 4 and I've made it for parties of 60. It's super tasty - no matter how you eat it.
Wrap this flavorful shrimp in a fresh tortilla for a really easy shrimp taco. Add some delicious protein to a green salad by adding a few colorful shrimp. Chill and dip these delicate shrimp in homemade cocktail sauce for a great appetizer or main dish. I eat these shrimp all of these ways. I usually eat them warm on the first day and then eat the leftovers on a salad or with cocktail sauce.
Roasted Garlic Herb Shrimp
1 pound shrimp
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons olive oil
pinch of red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon basil
salt and pepper
1/4 cup ketchup
1 heaping Tablespoon horseradish
Toss shrimp with garlic, oil, red pepper, basil, salt and pepper.
Spread in a single layer onto a baking sheet.
Bake 8-10 minutes at 400. Serve warm, out of the oven with a fresh batch of tortillas.
OR get your salads ready - these shrimp are DELICIOUS on a bed of greens.
I can't think of a better way to kick off this summer season than with a roasted garlic shrimp dinner that will please the whole family.
