You’ll need :
°1 1/2 pounds shrimp, fresh or frozen (make sure they’re thawed), peeled and deveined
°1/2 cup unsalted butter (equivalent to 1 stick), melted to liquid gold
°3 lemons, cut into thin slices
°1 package (0.7 ounces) of your favourite Italian seasoning
Begin by preheat oven 350°F. Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper for easy cleanup later.
Next, arrange the lemon slices in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet, then gracefully garnish with the shrimp.
It’s time to add the fancy melted butter. Sprinkle it generously over the prawns, making sure that all the pieces are well bathed.
To give that aromatic feel of the Italian countryside, sprinkle Italian seasoning over your shrimp.
Once everything is ready, put the baking tray in the oven. Cook for 13 to 15 minutes or until the shrimp are a nice pink color and opaque.
Here’s to the heavenly meal, quick and delicious.
Feel free to customize the recipe by adding your favorite seasonings or herbs to the marinade.
You can also add some vegetables like cherry tomatoes or asparagus to the sheet pan for a complete meal.
Make sure not to marinate the shrimp for too long, as the acidity from the lemon juice can start to “cook” the shrimp.
