I first came across this Roasted Shrimp appetizer in Cooking Light Magazine several years ago.
I've since misplaced the pages, but was able to find the Roasted Shrimp recipe online at MyRecipes.com. Love the internet! I found shell-on, deveined jumbo shrimp at my grocery store and they work really well. No additional cleaning required! If you have to devein your shrimp at home, simply use scissors to snip down the shell, left the vein out and discard. There are also helpful videos on YouTube!
