    Sometimes you need a fast meal, but you still want it to taste great, right? It doesn’t get any easier than this garlic butter shrimp. It’s great served with a salad or on top of my Easy Caulimash (here) or Basic Caulirice (here).

    • 1½ pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
    • ½ cup (1 stick) salted butter, melted
    • ¼ cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • Pinch of salt
    • Pinch of ground black pepper
    • 1 lemon, sliced

    1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

    2. Pat the shrimp dry. Arrange the shrimp in a single layer on the lined pan.

    3. In a small bowl, stir together the melted butter, parsley, garlic, salt, and pepper. Pour the butter mixture evenly over the shrimp. Place the lemon slices on top of the shrimp. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the shrimp is pink and opaque. Serve immediately.


    I purchased peeled and deveined shrimp to make this dish. If you’re using shrimp with the peels on, allow for more prep time.
