Image of Spicy Calabrian Shrimp


  • 1 pound large shrimp (peeled and deveined, tale in tact)
  • 2 teaspoons Calabrian chili paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest (from 1 lemon)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice (from half a small lemon)


  1. As seen on: Giada Entertains, Episode 4. Super-Sized Superbowl Party.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  3. In a medium bowl whisk together the chili paste, oregano, parmesan, lemon zest, olive oil and salt. Add the shrimp and toss gently to coat. Spread the shrimp evenly on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the shrimp are pink and opaque all the way through. While the shrimp are hot, squeeze half a lemon over the shrimp. Serve warm.

    This was really flavorful and the shrimp were cooked perfectly. I've made recipe twice now: once served over squid ink spaghetti and another time served with regular spaghetti using Giada's Calabrian Chile Pasta recipe. Both delicious!

    Calabrian chili paste isn’t the easiest product to find in Wisconsin. Can you recommend substitute products? For example, would Sambal Oleck work? Thanks.
