These tangy baked shrimp I threw together with the ingredients I had on hand and not much time to stand at the stove, but my husband and I were very hungry. Surprise, surprise! It turned out to be fabulously tasty! Hope you like it too! Serve with rice.

  • Mix shrimp, tomato paste, chili powder, basil, garlic powder, and salt. Add lemon juice and mix well. Add cilantro; mix well. Pour into the prepared baking dish and cover with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until shrimp are bright pink, 20 to 25 minutes; don't overcook, the shrimp will get hard.

Cook's Notes:

You can use 2 tablespoons paprika instead of chili powder.

It's okay to use shrimp with the tail on, too.
