Pour the sauce over the shrimp and bake the mixture for eight to 10 minutes at 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Serve topped with a sprinkle of chopped fresh parsley.

Alternatively, whip up a batch of crunchy, flavorful oven-fried shrimp. Combine 1 1/4 cups of panko with seasonings such as paprika, oregano, basil, thyme, granulated garlic, kosher salt and a dash of cayenne pepper. In a separate bowl, combine 4 tablespoons of melted butter with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Dip the shrimp in the butter mixture, then coat them in the panko. Arrange the shrimp on a greased baking sheet and bake them for 10 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit or until the tops are golden and the shrimp is opaque throughout when you poke it with a fork.

Season the hot oven-fried shrimps with a sprinkle of salt and a drizzle of fresh lemon juice. Optionally, serve the shrimp with an easy, zesty dipping sauce. To make it, combine 1 cup of ketchup with 2 tablespoons of horseradish, the zest of 1 lemon, 1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice and a few dashes of hot pepper sauce.
