Hey! I’m back sharing another yummy recipe. This recipe is built to serve one person – but can easily be doubled, tripled, quadrupled, etc. 🙂 I love this recipe! Not only is it tasty – but seriously can be ready in about 10 minutes, 15 if you are lost in the kitchen.
The first time I made this, I accidentally bought shrimp that had not been deveined or shelled. That was a mess! So when you’re doing your shopping be sure to check the package for deveined and shelled shrimp – it will make your life so much easier!
I’ve offered some simple serving suggestions below, but make it your own, and report back how you liked it and what you served it with! Enjoy!
- ½ pound shrimp (deveined and shelled)
- 1 lemon, sliced into rounds, then rounds cut in half
- 1 ½ teaspoons butter, melted
- 1 ½ teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- A pinch of each: dried oregano, thyme, basil
There are directions below for oven or stovetop cooking.
Preheat oven 450° F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with non- stick spray. Thread shrimp and lemon halves onto wooden or metal skewers. Place skewers onto the prepared baking sheet and roast at 450° until pink, firm, and just cooked through— about 5 to 7 minutes. In a medium skillet over medium high heat, melt butter. Stir in lemon juice, garlic, oregano, thyme, and basil and heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Brush shrimp skewers with butter mixture and serve immediately.

Serve alongside a salad, or on top of buttered and garlic salted pasta (or spaghetti squash). Enjoy!
