After a long day, I'm always on the lookout for a speedy and tasty dinner. Shrimp baked with butter and lemon is simple — and scrumptious, too. Lemon and butter topped on just about any seafood tends to be heavenly, and these little pink shrimp soak it up just the same. If you want to enhance the flavor even more, try adding a little more heat with a spicy pepper or hot sauce.
Want to avoid turning on the oven? This recipe would work just as well with a large fry pan on the stove. Serve the shrimp with a green salad and fresh French bread to dip in the lemon butter, and you've got dinner in about 20 minutes. To enjoy an easy seafood dinner tonight, keep reading for the recipe.
