7 minute Shrimp (Gamberi alla Mediterranea)
Preheat your oven to 425/bake. Make adjustments for convection cooking.
Ingredients: (Serves 4)
One pound and half of extra large (Jumbo) Shrimp. If you are using frozen, this will work too. Be sure and thaw them thoroughly.
2 Banana peppers, split, cored and sliced. Leave them hole if you like and discard them after cooking or serve them up. Any pepper you like will do.
2 teaspoons of salt
2 teaspoons of pepper
2 cloves of garlic diced or you can leave them hole then smash them for flavor and remove them before serving.
1/2 lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
Handful of parsley diced or left whole for decorating the plates. (Whatever you like)
One oven to table baking dish
Method: Remove your shells from your shrimp, remove the black vein across the back. Slice open across the back, leaving the tails intact. Just like opening a book.
Carefully toss your shrimp in a bowl with all the above ingredients. Place in as circle in your dish. Pour your marinade over your shrimp.
Bake for approximately, 7 minutes.
Might have to rename dish 7 Minutes of Heaven.
Just serve with some garlic toast.
Just a little squeeze of Lemon too. Discard the garlic if you like. I did not. Buon Appetito!
Special Note: Timing is everything. Jumbo shrimp vary in size. Don't be afraid to open your oven and take it out early. These were approximately 3 inches in length. (Not including the tail). Enjoy!
