Prepare 6 or 8 pieces of parchment. Lightly oil each with vegetable oil.

Peel shrimp and devein, if desired. Combine juice, olive oil, pepper, salt, dill, sugar, cumin, basil, garlic and green onion in a wide, shallow dish. Lay shrimp flat in mixture, then turn.

Divide shrimp evenly among parchment. Close parchment. Bake at 400° F until puffy and lightly browned, about 10 to 12 minutes. Place on individual plates.

Shrimp are crustaceans and belong to a larger group or animals called Arthropods.  Their skeleton is outside of their body (exoskeleton) and must be shed periodically when the animal grows.
