Lemon butter shrimp

Made a simple, delicious dinner tonight with my Mama. We were searching Pinterest for an easy, summery recipe for dinner, and stumbled across one for lemon butter shrimp. I found the pin here, but it doesn't lead to any source when clicked on so I don't know who to give credit to. Anyway, we changed the recipe a tiny bit to make it our own.

We melted a stick of butter on a baking sheet (the recipe said to use a sheet lined with foil but we didn't and it turned out fine), added slices from one and a half lemons, and added de-veined and shelled shrimp. We seasoned this with salt, black pepper, and a bit cayenne pepper.

It baked at 350 degrees for 12 minutes, and then we ate! It was that simple!

Very pleased with the results, I was able to fool myself into thinking I was eating crab (for way cheaper) and  the flavor was light and fresh. Great summer recipe.

  2. This looks delish!!! I am a shrimp fanatic but unfortunately J has developed an allergy to it so I don't cook it at home anymore. Might need to throw a dinner party so I can try this out. :) xoxo

  3. I literally just finished having a shrimp casserole! This looks delish and is making my mouth water, even though, like I said, I just had some! Yummy!!! x

  4. This sounds beyond amazing. I love lemon shrimp!
