Lemon Butter Baked Shrimp


Extra large raw shrimp – large or jumbo size will work too just adjust bake time slightly (give or take).

Butter – salted or unsalted will work here.

Garlic – use fresh garlic for best results.

Lemon juice – don’t use the bottled stuff here only fresh.

Salt and pepper

Red pepper flakes – if you don’t like heat omit them, if you love heat add extra.

Fresh parsley – not only will this add color but a light herby flavor that pairs well with lemon.


1 lb. raw shrimp, cleaned, peeled, and deveined

8 Tbs. butter (1 stick), melted

3 cloves garlic, minced (my addition)

1 packet of Good Seasons Italian all-natural seasoning

1 1/2 lemon, sliced into circles

1 Tbs. dried parsley leaves

1 tsp. black pepper, ground


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a small bowl, mix the melted butter with minced garlic, and pour into a 9×111 inch glass casserole dish, spreading it all over the bottom of the dish.

Arrange the lemon slices on top of the butter, forming a single layer.

Arrange the cleaned and deveined shrimp on top of the lemon slices.

Sprinkle the Italian Seasoning over the shrimp.

Sprinkle the parsley flakes and pepper on top of that.

Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
