Beach Shrimp

Here is a perfect summer recipe from Southern Living!  It’s quick and easy to throw together and bakes up in no time.  I have served it both hot and cold and both were a hit!  Perfect for a picnic on the beach or an easy app at your backyard BBQ!  Welcome summer!  We’ve been waiting for you!!!

Prep Ahead Plan:  I have found the shrimp is more flavorful if you let it sit in the marinade for several hours in the fridge before baking!

Beach Shrimp

Recipe adapted from Southern Living

3 pounds unpeeled, large raw shrimp (I use the deveined, easy peel, large shrimp)
1 (16-oz.) bottle Italian dressing
freshly ground black pepper (as much or as little as you like-I use about one tablespoon)
3 garlic cloves, minced or crushed
2 lemons, halved
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
3 tablespoons of butter

1. Place first 4 ingredients in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish, tossing to coat. Squeeze juice from lemons over shrimp mixture, and stir. Add lemon halves to pan. Sprinkle evenly with parsley and dot with butter.
2. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes. Serve right from the pan!
