Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. If your raw shrimp is frozen, put it in a colander and run barely warm water over them until they are thawed – grey and flexible. (this only takes minutes!) Leave them to drain the excess water from the colander in the sink. In a large bowl, combine the oil and all of the dry spices. Mix together really well. Add your raw shrimp and mix them in well until all of the shrimp are evenly coated. Spread coated shrimp evenly into a single layer on a shallow, tinfoil lined, metal baking sheet. This might take two baking sheets. Bake in preheated 450 degree oven for 8 minutes if you are using small shrimp. For medium to large size shrimp, bake an additional 2-3 minutes. Remove from oven and squeeze the juice from cut up fresh limes over the entire pan and sprinkle with chopped fresh cilantro and a fine layer of additional smoked paprika. Serve with rice, noodles or a veggie side and enjoy!
