Step 1

Heat the oven to 400°F: Heat the oven to 400°F with a rack placed in the middle of the oven.

Step 2

If frozen, thaw the shrimp: Place the shrimp you want to cook in a colander in the sink and run cold water over them for about 5 minutes. Toss the shrimp occasionally to make sure they are all exposed to the cold water.

Step 3

The shrimp will bend easily when thawed: You will know that the shrimp is thawed and ready when they are no longer frozen solid but soft, easily bendable, and slightly translucent. This will only take a few minutes. Pat the shrimp dry with a paper towel.

Step 4

Toss the shrimp with olive oil: Lightly drizzle the shrimp with olive oil.

Step 5

Season with salt and pepper: Sprinkle generously with salt and freshly-ground black pepper.

Step 6

Toss to coat with oil and seasonings: Toss lightly with your hands to ensure the shrimp is coated with oil and seasonings.

Step 7

Spread on a baking sheet: The shrimp should be in a single layer on a baking sheet. The shrimp should fit on the baking sheet in a single layer, with plenty of space between the shrimp.

Step 8

Bake for 6 to 8 minutes: Bake until the shrimp turns from blue-grey and translucent to white and pink and opaque. Remove and eat promptly.
