The Easiest Oven Baked Garlic Shrimps

There was a beautiful box of shrimps at the store the other day and I was ‘allowed’ to buy it on condition that I peel them for both me and my Mr. Well this surely won’t stop me, really not a big deal doing it for 2 – I’d probably think about it if I wanted to make a meal for a bunch of people, having to peel a kilo of shrimps might turn out to be a real challenge!

As I see it, shrimps are best when the recipe is kept simple. An easy marinade, some time in the oven, and tah dah!
