Blackened Shrimp With Roasted Garlic Aioli Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1 head garlic
    2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    3/4 cup mayonnaise
    1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
    2 teaspoons paprika
    2 teaspoons onion powder
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper or chipotle chile powder
    Salt and pepper
    3 tablespoons butter, melted
    1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined, with tails left on

Directions

  1. Set a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 400°. Slice off the top of the garlic head. Brush the cut side with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Wrap in foil and bake until tender, 40 minutes. Let cool.
  2. Squeeze the garlic cloves from their skins into a food processor. Add the mayonnaise and vinegar; puree. Transfer the aioli to a bowl and refrigerate.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, toast the paprika, onion powder, oregano, cayenne and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper over medium heat until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the melted butter. Transfer to a bowl and add the shrimp to coat.
  4. Brush a grill pan with the remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil and preheat over high heat. Add the shrimp and cook, turning once, until the spices are blackened, 2 to 4 minutes. Serve with the aioli dip.

Serves 8.
