A Yummy Shrimp Recipe

Or tasty, as my cousin Linda would say! I tried this recipe over the weekend and both Bill and I loved it. Charles didn’t try it, as he seemed to have forgotten that he liked shrimp when he took his girl friend out for her birthday last month!

Of course, I didn’t follow the recipe exactly, so please note the modifications!

2 servings
Prep time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pound shrimp, heads off and unpeeled
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup zesty Italian dressing
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • DIRECTIONS

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • 2. Wash shrimp and drain well.
  • 3. Melt margarine/butter in a one quart casserole dish. Add salad dressing, lemon juice, black pepper and garlic powder.
  • 4. Add shrimp to the casserole dish. Stir gently to cover the shrimp with the mixture. Cover and bake, stirring occasionally for 25 to 30 minutes or until shrimp are pink.
  • 5. Serve the shrimp hot on a large platter and place the sauce in individual bowls so that you can easily ‘dunk’ bread in the sauce!
  • My modifications:

  • I peeled the shrimp first. Takes longer, but much easier to do before it’s cooked and much less messy while eating!
  • I added four filets of flounder, partially thawed and broken up into smaller pieces.
  • I increased the recipe by 1/2 to accommodate the additional fish pieces.
  • Next time I will probably add slightly less butter, as it was very buttery! But very yummy!
