Here we go again with the garlic.  It seems like every single recipe I post has garlic in it.  Oh well, I do love it.  This shrimp cocktail really has a kick.  It definitely becomes addictive.

This recipe serves 4 appetizer servings

Roasted Shrimp

1 pound large shrimp (about 15 per pound)
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

Place baking sheet in oven.  Roast shrimp for 2-3 minutes and turn each one over with tongs.  Roast shrimp another 2-3 minutes until done.  Remove shrimp from baking sheet, place in a bowl and put in the refrigerator.  Chill at least 2 hours.
