Roasted Shrimp and Parsley with Spaghetti Squash

  • 1 medium spaghetti squash (about 3 pounds), halved lengthwise
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1-pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, plus lemon wedges for serving
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, roughly chopped

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Season squash with salt and pepper. Place cut side down in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Add 3/4 cup water and roast until tender when pierced with a knife, about 45 minutes. Let cool.

Meanwhile, on a rimmed baking sheet, toss shrimp with 1 teaspoon oil; season with salt and pepper. Roast until cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes.

Scoop out seeds from squash and discard. With a fork, scrape flesh into a large bowl. Add shrimp and any cooking juices, lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon oil; toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper, top with parsley, and serve with lemon wedges.
