A treat for me when we eat out is having sea food, I usually order some sort of shrimp. Since we aren’t eating out these days I’ve had to come up with ways to prepare it myself at home. This is a easy, fast and good shrimp recipe I make when I feel like splurging!
Buttery oven Shrimp
1-2 # raw shrimp, shelled and deveined
1 stick butter
2 lemons, sliced, thin
1/2 envelope pkg. dry Italian salad dressing or old bay seasoning
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, place one stick of butter in a glass 9x13 inch cake pan, place in oven until butter is melted. Take out of oven and place lemon slices in a single layer on top of melted butter, then in a single layer place raw shrimp on top of the lemon slices, sprinkle lightly with the dry Italian salad dressing mix or old bay seasoning. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the shrimp turn pink. I usually serve with a rice side dish, and veggie. It does take a little time to shell the shrimp but the dish is well worth it and its easy to do!
Stay warm and safe!
