Spicy Lemon Garlic Shrimp - SRC Reveal

My assignment this month for the Secret Recipe Club  is Hilary's  blog baking bad .  In my opinion, she bakes rather 'good'!  Her recipe index is awesome!  I chose to prepare the Spicy Lemon Garlic Shrimp.

I always have some kind of shrimp for the holidays - usually shrimp cocktail, but this one caught my eye.  It's simple to make, has a bit of a kick - and lot's of butter! :o)  The only change I made was to use peeled shrimp and some black pepper.

Spicy Lemon Garlic Shrimp
from Pioneer Woman Cooks
2 pounds Raw Shrimp, Deveined, Shells On
2 sticks Cold Unsalted Butter Cut Into Pieces
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
4 cloves Garlic, Peeled
1/4 cup Fresh Parsley
1/2 teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper
1 whole Lemon, Juiced
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Rinse frozen shrimp to separate, then arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet.
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.
Bake until shrimp is opaque and butter is hot and bubbly.
Serve with hot crusty bread. Peel and eat the shrimp, then dip the bread into the butter in the bottom of the pan.

  1. this sounds soo good. It reminds me of an appetizer I had at a Tapas place. It could also work well for an entree with some rice. yum

  2. Looks simply delicious! Love that you added black pepper too! Good call :)

  3. This reminds me of some awesome peel and eat shrimp I had at a raw bar in Florida a few years ago. I will definitely have to try this recipe! Thanks for sharing :)

  4. I made this before! The sauce at the bottom of it all is so good when dipped with a big chunk of bread! This recipe is a keeper for sure!
