This recipe is a mash-up of souvlaki style Greek marinade from Beth over at Tasty Yummies and Spanish style Garlic Shrimp. This dish is terrific served hot, as well as cold the next day over a salad, or just as a snack.
Clean and devein shrimp. Mince garlic.
Preheat broiler to high. Toss shrimp in a bowl with garlic, oregano, smoked and sweet paprika, red pepper flakes, lemon zest, salt, and oil. Mix well so that shrimp are coated with mixture.
Pour shrimp and marinade onto a baking sheet or in a cast iron pan. Broil for 7 minutes, or until pink and done inside. Remember the shrimp will continue to cook once out of the oven, so cook them until they JUST turn pink.
These can also be skewered and grilled, or cooked stovetop in a hot skillet.
