Only 4 ingredients and a few minutes in the oven and you’ve got dinner ready! Buttery Baked Shrimp is a perfect weeknight meal.
I found myself actually looking forward to this blog post when I woke up this morning. This just might be a very fun project! It’s nice to carve out some time for myself each day. We’ll see if it lasts….
Spoiler alert-it lasted. This was Day 2 and now, five years later, I’m finally updating the post with new pictures. 🙂
Today, I’m posting something I’ve used several times already. Prior to this pin, which is a picture and description only, I’d never made shrimp at home before. It was always a little intimidating, and it’s too expensive to mess up! But this recipe is a no-brainer! Buttery, lemony, goodness-you won’t miss the breading on this shrimp! Go ahead and pay extra for the de-veined and peeled shrimp. It will make this a FAST meal. There’s nothing grosser than eating something with its legs still attached. *shivers*
This delicious seafood dish is perfect for busy weeknights! Just a few ingredients and you're ready to go!
- 1 lemon, sliced
- 1 lb shrimp peeled and de-veined
- 1 pkt Italian seasoning
- 1/2 cup butter, melted (one stick)
Line a baking sheet with foil. Cover with the lemon slices
Spread the shrimp over the lemon slices in one layer
Sprinkle seasoning over the shrimp as evenly as possible
Melt butter in the microwave and pour over the shrimp
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, or until shrimp is pink and translucent

I wouldn’t have guessed that the first recipe on my site would be sea food, but then again, I wouldn’t have guessed that I would eventually consider myself to be a food blogger! 🙂 Things happen, lives change, but a great recipe-that lasts forever. Enjoy!
