Wood-Roasted Shrimp

What a beautiful snowy December we had here in Minnesota!! We decided to fire up the wood burning oven for Christmas...but with something less stressful than a turkey! Roasting shrimp takes only 6 minutes! Standing in the snow at 10 degrees, one can only handle about 6 minutes!

Wood-Roasted Shrimp
from Mugnaini's At of Wood-Fired Cooking

2 pounds shelled raw shrimp
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon lemon zest
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil

Prepare the oven for a roasting environment, which means it has been prepped to reach pizza oven temperatures, then allowed to drop in temperature. There should be a medium sized bed of coals and a small flame. The hearth temperature should be about 550 degrees, and no less than 450 degrees.

Place shrimp in medium bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Place onto a sheet pan (we used a paella pan), set in oven and roast for 6 minutes until pink and firm to the touch.

1/2 cup Heinz chili sauce
1/2 cup Heinz ketchup
3 tablespoons prepared horseradish
2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce

Mix together, and serve with the shrimp.

Easy and delicious!!
