2 garlic cloves, minced
2 1/2 teaspoons sweet paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or more to taste

2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 - 2 lbs large shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails intact

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place 2 rimmed baking sheets in the oven to heat for about 10 minutes. Stir together lemon zest, garlic, salt, paprika, cayenne, honey, and oil in a large bowl. Add shrimp, and toss to coat well.
Place shrimp in a single layer on hot pans. Roast, without flipping, until browned on bottoms and opaque throughout, about 5 minutes.
