Broiled Rock Shrimp Recipe
Turn your oven onto Broil and put your oven rack as high as it will go. Spread your split and cleaned rock shrimp out shell side down on a cookie sheet. Spoon melted butter over them and add seasoning (if preferred). Rock shrimp go well with a variety of seasonings, such as Old Bay and Caribbean Jerk. Slide your pan of rock shrimp into the oven. As the rock shrimp cook, their flesh will turn from opaque to white and their tails will roll up and scorch on the ends. The shrimp are done when the flesh just starts to pull away from the shell. It takes about 1 ½ – 3 minutes, depending on your oven. You might want to experiment with 2 or 3 shrimp before you put a whole pan in as each oven cooks differently. Overcooked shrimp will be rubbery and tough. Melt some butter in which to dip your rock shrimp.
