This crowd pleaser appetizer is one of my favorites from one of my favorite cookbooks, Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics, so of course I had to serve it at my Gr8 Dinner themed “Celebrating Ina The Barefoot Contessa.”
Instead of boiling the shrimp, I love that the shrimp is roasted with a little bit of olive oil and seasoning.
The recipe calls for 2 pounds of shrimp but make as much as you want because using basic ingredients and the recipe below and you’ll have extra cocktail sauce.
Definitely one of my “go to” appetizers because it is so easy and everyone loves it. Perfect for the holidays or for anytime. I promise you won’t be disappointed and either will your family and guests! Enjoy!
