Could That BE Any Easier?!

I hope you were reading that as if Chandler Bing were saying it.  If not, go back and try again.  Seriously though…when I pinned this recipe I knew I wouldn’t be able to wait long until we tried it.  We’re big seafood lovers at our house and we love us some shrimp.  The easier we can prep ‘em, the better…and this couldn’t be any easier if we tried!!!

 

LEMON BUTTER SHRIMP WITH ITALIAN SEASONING

1 lb. shrimp {fresh or frozen…I used frozen…just make sure to thaw first!}

1 stick butter, melted

1-2 lemons, sliced thin

1 pkg. dry Italian seasoning {I used Zesty Italian, Good Seasoning}

 

See what I mean?!  E-A-S-Y!!!!!

First off, line a baking sheet {with edges!!!} with foil.  Slice the lemons and randomly place them on the baking sheet.

Melt your butter and pour it on top of the lemons making sure that it’s spread evenly over the baking sheet.

I placed my shrimp {peeled & deveined} in a large ziplock and then tossed in the packet of Italian seasoning, shook it up real good until the shrimp were evenly coated, and then poured the shrimp on top of the butter & lemon on the baking sheet.

Now bake at 350 for about 12{ish} minutes and then remove from the oven.  We served ours over brown rice and ohmiword…AMAZING!!!!

This shrimp dish was definitely full of flavor!  They would’ve been good on their own without any rice, but we didn’t have anything else to accompany them, so a bed of brown rice seemed like the perfect companion for these little guys!!!  From prep time to finish, this recipe took a total of *maybe* 20{ish} minutes?!?!?!  For real, people…could it BE any easier?!?!?! YUM!!!

  11. This recipe is really good, but what makes it even better is adding a dash of cayenne pepper and Lawry's Lemon pepper on top before baking. ..dish was a 7 as is but with the added ingredients. ..it was a 10!

  12. Made this today but instead of serving it with rice I made the lemon pasta. It was delicious. Everyone asked for seconds. The best part was that it was fast and easy to make. Perfect for those days you get home from work and everyone is starving.
