15 minute meal

shrimp-picture.jpgShrimp scampi is possibly one of the easiest meals to make. The biggest problem with the dish is overcooking the shrimp.  I came across a post that suggested baking the shrimp instead of sauteing it in the butter garlic mixture.  I was intrigued, so with little preparation and great flavor, 15 minutes later, dinner was on the table.  

Shrimp Scampi Bake

1/2 cup butter
1 Tbsp. prepared Dijon style mustard
Juice of half a lemon
Splash of white wine
1 garlic clove chopped
big hand full chopped fresh parsley
2 pounds 51/60 count raw shrimp, peeled and deveined

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F

In a small pan add butter, garlic, mustard, lemon juice, wine and parsley. When the butter melts remove from heat.

Arrange shrimp in a shallow baking dish. Pour butter mixture over the shrimp

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until shrimp are pink and opaque.


About heylaydee

An average cook, an enthusiasm for experimenting and trying new things, is the reason for this blog. That and I found myself in the “empty nest” syndrome and needed an outlet. So I picked up the camera that was collecting dust, got out the pile of recipes, contacted friends and family for their favorites and starting cooking again. What could be better than a glass of wine, a hot stove, and creativity? Come along for the ride. I will be blogging about food, family, and anything else that inspires me.

  1. Your so right! Raw shrimp will not hurt you and very few people can tell when shrimp have not been cooked enough. But almost everyone can tell when it is over cooked!
