Spicy Lemon Garlic Shrimp


This is a recipe made on New Year's Eve when we made tapas.  It is a recipe from the Pioneer Woman, and it was super easy and turned out great (and I'm not even a huge lover of Shrimp).  I will definitely be making this again. There is quite a bit of butter in the recipe, but don't be scared off, they don't seem that heavy.  Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the ingredients, but the list of ingredients is short so I think we don't need it.  Also, the original recipe says to use shrimp still in the shell, but I didn't want everyone to have to peel them so I used ones that were already shelled and I think they turned out just as well.

Spicy Lemon Garlic Shrimp
from Pioneer Woman

2 pounds Raw Frozen Shrimp, deveined (with or without shells - I used ones without shells)
2 sticks cold Unsalted Butter cut into pieces
1 tsp Kosher Salt
4 cloves Garlic, Peeled
1/4 cups Fresh Parsley
1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
1 Whole Lemon, Juiced

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Rinse frozen shrimp to separate, then arranged in a single layer on baking sheet.

2. In the bowl of a food processor, add cold butter, garlic, lemon juice, salt, parsley, and red pepper.  Pulse until combined.  Sprinkle cold butter crumbles over the shrimp.

3. Bake until shrimp is opaque and butter is hot and bubbly (about 20 min).

4. Serve with hot crusty bread.  Peal and eat shrimp (if not already peeled) then dip the bread into the butter at the bottom of the pan.

This looks very yummy! Wonder how it could be served as a meal? less butter? over noodles or rice?
