Easy Rosemary Garlic Shrimp

I call this Easy Rosemary Garlic Shrimp because it’s just so ridiculously easy to prepare and the cooking method is even easier!

You and your family will be amazed at the flavor you can get from combining such few ingredients

With minimal effort, you can get this tasty meal on the table in no time at all!

Gather together one 4 ounce stick of butter, 2 lemons, 6 cloves of garlic (is there ever enough??) and 2 large fresh rosemary sprigs

Preheat your oven to 375 F

Place the stick of butter on a sheet pan to melt as the oven heats up

Finely chop the rosemary and slice both the peeled garlic and lemons

I told you this was easy shrimp… I even bought 2 pounds of shrimp that was shelled and de-veined for me

 Place the lemon slices over the melted butter on the sheet pan

Then add the sliced garlic to the pan

Now place the shrimp uniformly over the lemons and garlic

  We’re ready to rock ‘n roll!

Once every shrimp is nestled down in the pan, let’s season ’em up

Sprinkle with the chopped rosemary, kosher salt and black pepper

Pop your tray into the oven for 5 minutes

 At 5 minutes, flip every shrimp

Yep….Every last one of them

Now, my shrimp weren’t jumbo, so they were cooked through at 10 minutes

If you have big ol’ chubby shrimp, good for you!

But you’ll want to cook them an additional minute or two

The basic rule of thumb for cooking shrimp is that they should be opaque and firm
Take one out and try it

  You’re the cook!

You deserve an extra shrimp

Toss the shrimp around with the butter, lemons and garlic and sprinkle with chopped, fresh parsley & crushed red pepper

YUM!

Now let’s talk about the end product

What you have here is a tray of shrimp that will lend itself wonderfully to an appetizer table

Or serve next to some crusty bread, or serve over your favorite pasta

It’s your choice.  No matter what, it’ll taste great

We pinky promise!
