Whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper until thoroughly mixed in a bowl. Set it aside.

Place shrimp, olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl and give it a gentle toss. Transfer onto a sheet pan in a single layer.
Roast the shrimp in a preheated 400 F degree oven for 6 minutes rotating the shrimp halfway through the baking process.
