Shrimp and Cilantro

We made Moroccan shrimps. We put them over millet and that part wasn't that great, but the shrimps were great. Next time we'll just have them with salad or something. They're not spicy, but they have a nice bright flavor. One pound of shrimp is maybe 40 regular sized ones, so think of how many shrimp you want and judge your servings from that.

1 pound medium shrimp, deveined and peeled, tail on
16 cilantro sprigs
5 garlic cloves
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon tomato paste
Grated zest of 1/2 lemon (I cheated and just squirted in some lemon juice)
Sea salt, to taste

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Food process everything but the shrimp until it looks saucy, then put it in a large-ish bowl with your shrimps. Toss them together, then spread them out on a large baking sheet.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. 

Even after peeling my own easy-peel frozen shrimp it was a pretty quick dish to make. We totally bought our shrimp frozen because we don't live in shrimp country, but those of you near oceans can probably do better than that. ;)
