Buttery Lemon Shrimp

Butter, lemons and shrimp...does it get any better!    Mmmmmmmmm good!

If you enjoy seafood, and particularly shrimp, this recipe will become a regular in your dinner rotation.  If you can buy shrimp that are peeled and deveined, it will save you some time.  
I personally like Tiger Shrimp because they are BIG and if you do have to clean them, you have fewer to do per pound!

This recipe is easily doubled for more servings, but as posted, it serves 2.

Before you get started, I have a tip to share.  If you have a micro-plane grater, use it to grate your garlic. Flip it over and scoot the finely minced garlic into your recipe!

 It is quick and easy, the garlic is a lovely consistency  and the cleanup is super simple! 

Buttery Lemon Shrimp


1/4 cup of butter, melted (1/2 stick)
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 Tablespoon ground black pepper
1 Tablespoon hot sauce (or less depending on your taste)
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 pound of shrimp, cleaned and deveined
1 lemon, thinly sliced


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a glass bowl, melt the butter in the microwave.
Add the Worcestershire Sauce, lemon juice, pepper, hot sauce, garlic and salt and stir to mix well.
Clean and devein the shrimp.

Place the cleaned shrimp in a heatproof dish and pour the buttery sauce over the top of the shrimp.
Mix thoroughly to coat the shrimp with the sauce.

Place the thinly sliced lemons over the top.
Pop everything in the oven and bake uncovered for 15-20, until the shrimp are pink, stirring a couple of times during the baking process to ensure the shrimp cook evenly.

Serve alongside your favorite veggies or with some cooked pasta.

...and that's What's Cooking at Cathy's ~ Enjoy!

My career is in IT.  Cooking and photography are among a few of my hobbies. In my spare time, which is most weekends I tie on my apron and exercise my creativity by trying new recipes and adapting them to my tastes. I also have a passion for photography that I incorporate by taking photographs to go along with the recipes I post on my blog.  
I also enjoy travel, both near and abroad. Meeting new people, new experiences and cultures and oh, not to mention the food! I hope you enjoy my blog.
