Recipe of the Week

This week's recipe reminded me of dinner at the beach. It's aptly titled Beach Shrimp and it is 
delicious! We had the shrimp with crusty bread, corn on the cob and 
potatoes. Next time I will use larger shrimp, but the smaller ones are all I had on hand and they
worked just fine. The absolute best part is using the crusty bread to sop up the juices in the pan. YUM!

1 lb. unpeeled, large raw shrimp (I had the peeled, smaller version and they worked.)
4 T. olive oil
1 T. parsley
1 T. oregano
1 T. basil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 lemon, halved
1/2 c. butter, cut up

1. Place first six ingredients in a baking dish; toss to coat. Squeeze juice from lemon over shrimp and stir. 
Add lemon halves to pan. Sprinkle with butter. 

2. Bake at 375º for 15-20 minutes or until shrimp are done. Serve in pan. 

3. Enjoy! 

This recipe can easily be doubled! 

Forgive the crappy iPhone photo!

That sounds really good! I think I am going to give it a try... I have some shrimp hanging out in the freezer, just screaming to be made into this!

Yum! Mmm...butter. This seems like a good dish to serve tonight, perhaps I'll do just that. :)

Oh, as delicious as this looks, I'll have to pass on it due to my shellfish allergy!!

This looks amazing. I've discovered my love of shrimp (living on the Gulf coast I think that's a requirement?) but I think I need to make this tomorrow. The husband will love it!
