If you are a shrimp lover, this is the easiest and tastiest shrimp dish. The shrimp is tender, melt in your mouth, buttery, lemony and very shrimpish. You just throw everything in a baking sheet and bake. I added a juicy steak and some angel hair pasta and had a nice surf and turf dinner. It really didn’t need the steak, but you know me….I gotta have my beef. It would be great to throw in some cherry tomatoes and garlic, but I didn’t. I made this just like the recipe I found on Pinterest. The possibilities are endless here as to what you can throw in. Get creative……get your shrimp on!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh and don’t forget to have a great glass of wine with it. My favorite is anything from Wiens Vineyard in Temecula. I think I mentioned that before! More on that in a future post.
1 pound of raw shrimp (make sure its fresh clean and not all stinky and stuff….ewwwwww, that would be gross and stink up your kitchen and your tummy will hurt and all that.
1 stick of butter (please don’t use margarine or that crock crap)
1 large lemon or 2 small, sliced
A half of a packet of dry Italian salad dressing mix (a whole packet would be way too salty. Shrimp is already so salty, but you already know that)
Heat your oven to 350 degrees. Put a whole stick of butter on a small sheet pan or baking dish and place it in the oven till the butter is melted. Lay lemon slices in the butter. Place the shrimp on the lemon slices. Sprinkle with the dry salad dressing mix. Place pan in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. That’s it! Can you believe it?? OMG and so good too….YUM.
