Butter Shrimp

This is my new favorite dish. I’ve been on a crazy seafood kick lately and this just hits the spot! YUMM!! It’s also so easy and fast to make, which this momma ALWAYS loves. It goes perfect atop warm, parmesan noodles also…just FYI.
Do you want to splurge and make a decadent meal that super quick, but delicious? Then make this. Oh, and it was DIVINE as leftovers the next day for lunch!!

1 pound medium raw shrimp (fresh or frozen, but thawed – I like to buy the frozen at Costco)
1 lemon
1 stick butter
1 packet Italian Seasoning Mix
1/2 pound spaghetti, cooked
parmesan cheese

Line a jellyroll pan with foil. Slice a whole lemon VERY thinly. Place a layer of lemon slices over an entire jellyroll pan. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter.

In the meantime, add a layer of shrimp to the top of the lemons, making sure they aren’t overlapping.  After the butter is melted, add the seasoning mix and stir. Pour over shrimp.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Either eat alone or with spaghetti. After I cooked my spaghetti, I added a dash of olive oil and then about 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese. Don’t forget to pour a little butter sauce on top of the noodles…TO DIE FOR!!


  1. Okay, I don't even like shrimp, but that looks so good. I am definitely going to try those parmesan noodles though!
