Yummy Lemon Butter Shrimp

I just had to share this super easy recipe for cooking shrimp. I am always on the look out for affordable, quick recipes that make it easy for me to cook for my family. This definitely fits those requirements and is just as delicious as it looks! Unfortunately we found out this past weekend after making this that Bella has a shrimp allergy. So even though we cannot make this as a family meal, I would be remiss if I didn't share it with those that can. It really is SO yummy!


2 pounds of thawed shrimp (I used 2 bags of frozen shrimp from the grocery store)

2 large lemons

1 cup butter, melted

Fresh basil

2 packets of italian seasoning (on the salad dressing aisle)

Optional Seasonings



Old Bay seasoning


Put shrimp into a large ziplock bag and pour in two packets of italian seasoning

Shake the bag until all shrimp are well coated with seasoning

Pour melted butter into the bottom of a foil lined pan (for easy cleanup)

Layer lemon slices and desired amount of fresh basil onto pan

Place your shrimp evenly on the pan

Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and old bay seasoning

Bake in oven on 350 for 15-20 minutes
