Pin it


1 pound large shrimp
½ cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
3 red jalapeños, thinly sliced, seeds retained

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon dried oregano
Juice of 1 lemon
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 cup shrimp stock

2. Preheat oven to 400°F. Discard marinade, combine shrimp with lemon juice and garlic, then spread out on a thin baking sheet.
