MONDAY FOOD POST - OVEN ROASTED GARLIC PARMESAN SHRIMP



As it has been a couple of months since I did a food post, I thought I would share this one today, entirely prepared by Gregg.  

I found this recipe at The Cutting Edge of Ordinary, hosted by Lisa.  If you enjoy shrimp you can find the original recipe here.  I showed it to Gregg to see if he would like it, he did and we decided to make this our next meal.  



Oven Roasted Garlic Parmesan Shrimp

1 lb. raw large shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoons dried Italian Seasoning
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Line a sheet pan with parchment paper, or lightly spray pan with cooking spray.

Place all the ingredients in a bowl large enough to hold all the shrimp.  Mix all the ingredients together and place shrimp in a bowl.  Toss shrimp to coat.  Place into the oven and roast just until pink, firm and cooked through, about 6 to 8 minutes (don't overcook).
We went to the store in the afternoon, and in the early evening I found myself dropping off for an hour.  It had been a long day of running errands and I was a wee bit weary. I woke up hearing, "Time to eat!"  Gregg had fixed this meal and it was delicious. Since he retired he has become quite the chef.


Very easy to prepare according to hubs.  He also sautéed in a little olive oil, sliced zucchini mixed with chopped onion and corn he scraped off two cobs.  He didn't time it, but just enough for the zucchini to still have a bite to it.  

We shared a beer and toasted his Mom today.  He said she would have been surprised that he prepared this meal.  I said she would have been proud.

This dish was made a couple of weeks' ago.
