If you’re starting with thawed shrimp (remember to move them from the freezer to the refrigerator the night before), this recipe is incredibly easy. Even if your shrimp is frozen, they only take a few minutes under running water to thaw.
After that, toss the shrimp in salt, pepper, and olive oil, and roast in the oven. Dinner will be ready in minutes.

Patience is one of Guy’s virtues, as is generosity. Throw in a sense of adventure in the kitchen, and you’ll find someone who makes great risotto. He made this risotto for Valentine’s Day and then again when we invited another couple over for dinner and ping pong. The combination of creamy rice, shrimp, peas, lemon zest, and pecorino cheese is hard to forget.
