Quick and easy roasted shrimp with a homemade cocktail sauce. It’s a classic!


  • 1/2 pound fresh shrimp with tails intact, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 1/2 tablespoon Sriracha, or other hot sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly spray it with cooking spray. Toss the shrimp with the olive oil and a few pinches each of salt and pepper. Spread them out evenly on the baking sheet and roast for approximately 6-10 minutes, depending on the size of your shrimp (mine took 6 minutes). Keep and eye on them – you’ll know they’re done when they turn opaque and are firm to the touch. Remove them from the oven and transfer them to a bowl or plate. Pop it in the fridge and let them chill for at least ten minutes before serving.
  2. While the shrimp are chilling, mix the rest of the ingredients together in a small bowl until well combined. Give it a taste and season with salt and pepper. Serve with the chilled shrimp.
