Roasted Shrimp with garlic-rosemary and thyme

In my family, we love shrimp in all forms - roasted, grilled or fried. Cooked shell fish changes from gray to a beautiful pinkish orange color, makes me love seafood even more. Its true we eat with our eyes.

This shrimp recipe is a quick and healthy yet very flavorful dish. Above all it requires no attention from you. I strongly recommend buying pre-cleaned shrimp. And then you need 20 minutes before dinner time to make this recipe start to finish.

Roasted Garlic-Rosemary Shrimp, an easy fall dinner in just 25 minutes!

Just grab a rustic olive bread while going home. Bread tastes amazing when dunked in roasted shrimp sauce collected at the bottom of pan.

I used individual oven safe serving containers to bake it, so every one gets own portion of sauce to dunk the bread. It makes it easy to serve - cook and serve containers and no messy cleanup needed to make this mouthwatering dinner in 20 minutes.
