Last night, I hosted our New Year Bookclub meeting. We discussed the terrific memoir “Educated” by Tara Westover. It’s such a joy to toast the new year with great friends while discussing a great book.
As you know, book club discussion needs delicious snacks and wine. What better choice than roasted shrimp to spice up our night.
Roasted Shrimp with Bang Bang sauce
- 1 lb. of Shrimp
- 2 tsp of powdered garlic and parsley
- 1 tsp of Paprika
- 1 Tbsp of Olive Oil
- Salt and Pepper, to taste
For the sauce:
- 1/3 cup of Mayonnaise
- 1/3 cup of sour cream
- 2 Tbsp of Plain Greek Yogurt
- 1 Tbsp of Honey Sriracha
- 1/3 cup of Sweet Chili Sauce
- Salt and Pepper
- 3 scallions chopped
To make the sauce, stir together the mayo, yogurt, Honey Sriracha, chili sauce, salt, and scallions, cover with some plastic wrap and pop it in the fridge for a bit.
Thaw the shrimp. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Toss the shrimp with the oil, granulated garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper, lay on a single layer and pop them in the oven for about 5 minutes.
Remove from the oven and serve alongside the sauce.
Cheers to reading, good food, and great company

We used to do a potluck on my former NJ club. Here, the hostess provides the snack and we take turns hosting.
