Quick Baked Shrimp in Butter Garlic Lemon Sauce
Weekday nights can be crazy. Everyone is running around or running late. And everyone is tired. I know there are lots of afternoons I run out of steam to cook dinner, but I still cook. Cooking at home is better for your waistline and your wallet as I like to say.
That’s where quick baked shrimp in butter garlic lemon sauce comes into the picture. It is a dump and bake meal. Thaw the shrimp, melt the butter, then combine the rest of the ingredients in an oven-safe baking dish and in 20 minutes you have a dinner. You can serve it with pasta, side salad, and/or crusty bread. The sauce is wonderful and very flavorful. Perfect actually for dipping crusty bread in to sop up the sauce. That is my favorite part.
