Lemon Butter Shrimp

This delicious main dish comes courtesy of one of those Pinterest pins with details in the caption, because the  link doesn't actually go anywhere with a real recipe.  So I ran with the notes from the pin, modified a bit to suit my family, and before I knew it I had a new favorite way to make shrimp that got enthusiastic votes from the peanut gallery.  Hooray!

  • 30-50 pre-cooked, peeled shrimp, tails removed
  • 1/2 stick of butter (4 tablespoons)
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt the butter in the microwave.
  3. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.  Pour on the melted butter and evenly coat the baking sheet.
  4. Lay the lemon slices in a single layer on the buttered baking sheet.
  5. Arrange the shrimp on top of the lemon and butter so that each shrimp is at least covering a bit of lemon slice.
  6. Sprinkle generously with Italian seasoning.  I'm guesstimating that I used about 2 teaspoons.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes.
There you go.  Insanely easy, and super delicious.  I served mine with rice and a salad and it was great!  Enjoy.
