How Long to Roast Shrimp at 400°F

The high oven temp of 400°F allows these jumbo shrimp to roast to perfection in only 10 minutes. Any longer and you risk overcooking them into rubber.

To Peel or Not to Peel?

Whether or not to leave the shrimp shells on is a personal preference. Many find the shells add great flavor and texture. But if you prefer de-shelled, just peel them first. Either way, make sure to leave the tails on for an attractive presentation.

Knowing When Shrimp is Done

Perfectly cooked shrimp should be opaque, with firm yet slightly tender flesh. You’ll know they’re ready when they have turned from translucent to an opaque pinkish-white color and have visibly plumped up. The exposed area where the vein was removed should look whiter and more opaque than the rest.

How to Serve Garlic Parmesan Roasted Shrimp

These garlic shrimp are best served piping hot, straight from the oven. Consider serving over rice, pasta, or zucchini noodles to soak up all those glorious garlicky juices. A crusty bread is also perfect for dipping. Garnish with fresh parsley and an extra squeeze of lemon for brightness.

Tips for Perfection

  • Use large or jumbo shrimp for best results and flavors.
  • Pat shrimp very dry before seasoning to help the oil and seasonings stick.
  • Don’t overcrowd the baking sheet – shrimp need some space.
  • Start with hot oven temperature for best browning.

Delicious Variations

  • Swap Parmesan for feta or cotija cheese.
  • Add crushed red pepper flakes for some kick.
  • Substitute fresh thyme or rosemary for the Italian seasoning.
  • Use clarified butter or olive oil for roasting.
  • Finish with a pat of garlic herb compound butter.
