If you are on Pinterest, you have most likely seen the lemon butter shrimp picture that’s been going around. For lunch today, I made my own version, check out the recipe below! Oven Baked Shrimp Ingredients:
8-10 shrimp (I used jumbo deveined, shell on) 1/2 medium sweet onion, diced
1/2 c. cherry tomatoes 1/2 lemon, sliced into thin rounds 1/2 stick of butter (4 Tbs) 2-3 tsp Old Bay seasoning 1 Tbs minced garlic 3/4 tsp onion powder 3/4 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp dried parsley flakes Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350. 2. Melt butter, pour into 9″ round cake pan. 3. Add in diced onion, garlic, and tomatoes, stir to coat in butter.
4. Spread lemon slices around the inside of the pan. 5. Place shrimp in single layer in pan, flipping once to coat both sides. 6. Sprinkle with Old Bay, garlic powder, onion powder, and parsley. 7. Bake for 15 minutes, remove and toss with pasta to serve.
This makes an easy, delicious meal and can easily be split between two people. You could also do an Italian style with capers, artichoke, and parmesan, or even Cajun with peppers and cayenne! I’m going to play around with the recipe in the next few days and see how it comes out if you substitute broth for the butter, I’ll be sure to link up to that recipe as well.
