  • 1 1/2 lb. large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt (not fine salt)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Arrange the shrimp in a single layer on a large rimmed broiler-safe baking sheet. 
  • Pour the melted butter on top of the shrimp and toss to coat. 
  • Sprinkle the shrimp with the kosher salt, black pepper, garlic powder, crushed red pepper and Parmesan. 
  • Bake until the shrimp are pink and opaque, about 8 minutes. If you want the Parmesan to brown, finish by broiling the baked shrimp for about 1 minute. 
  • Transfer the baked shrimp to a serving platter and spoon the pan juices on top. Serve immediately.
