  1. For the Shrimp:
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees (F). Place the shrimp in an even layer on a large baking sheet; set aside. In a small bowl combine the lime zest, lime juice, oil oil, salt, pepper, and garlic; stir well to combine. Pour the mixture over the shrimp and toss the shrimp around a little to help coat them evenly. Be sure to arrange the shrimp in an even layer without any of them overlapping when finished. Roast the shrimp for 8-9 minutes, or until they're pink and opaque all the way through. Transfer shrimp to a clean dish and let them cool. Place in the fridge until needed.
  3. For the cocktail sauce:
  4. In a small bowl combine all of the ingredients, mixing well to evenly combine. Chill until needed.
