Roasting shrimp intensifies their sweet flavor making them succulent and tender. Here the flavors of garlic, lemon and thyme all mingle together before being tossed with the shrimp and served with angel hair spaghetti.
Olive oil, lemon zest and fresh thyme are briefly roasted without the shrimp to saturate the oil with flavor. The shrimp is then tossed in the fragrant oil with thinly sliced lemon and minced garlic then briefly roasted until they turn pink and start to curl.
I like this best served over thin and delicate angel hair spaghetti tossed with fresh-squeezed lemon juice and a fruity, extra-virgin olive oil. Feel free to serve it over your favorite pasta or grain, couscous or fluffy rice.
It’s light, bright and so deliciously simple it should be criminal! You want to make this tonight! I know you do. Then come back and thank me. You’re welcome.
