Spiced Shrimps (crevettes d'epices)

these are good. so good. i make them pretty often. we all like them, almost too much.... he he.

2 pounds large shrimp
3 tbsp olive oil or other oil
2 tbsp cumin
1 tbsp chili powder
2 tsp smoked paprika (or regular)
1 tsp garlic powder (or several cloves minced garlic)
1 tsp obion powder
1/2 tsp coriander
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (or to taste)

heat the broiler with the rack on the second rung. mix the spices with the oil. you can peel the shrimp or leave them unpeeled and have peel and eat going on. toss the shrimp with the spice mixture. spread out on a baking sheet in a single layer. place under the broiler about 10-15 minutes, or until firm. Don't overcook!

you can make scampi this way too, just use butter and garlic instead of spices, and add lemon juice.
