Garlic Butter Shrimp
Garlic Butter Shrimp is such an easy party appetizer. It also makes a wonderful main dish when served with fresh bread and a salad. The whole thing can be ready in under 20 minutes!
stick (8 tablespoons)
chopped fresh rosemary
chopped fresh parsley
1/4 to 1/2
crushed red pepper flakes
peeled and deveined, tails left on if desired
sliced green onions for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place butter and oil in a nonstick pan and melt over medium heat
Once butter starts to melt, add garlic, rosemary, parsley, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Remove from heat once fully melted.
Zest the lemon and add to butter mixture. Slice the lemon and add slices to the bottom of a 9-inch or 11x7-inch baking pan.
Place shrimp on top of lemon slices. Pour butter mixture over them.
Place in oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
Sprinkle with green onions and serve with fresh bread.
Note: I use salted butter unless otherwise noted.
