On a tinfoil lined baking pan, slice one lemon and layer it on top of the tinfoil. Place shrimp over lemon slices. Place one stick worth of sliced butter "pats" on top of the shrimp. Then sprinkle one pack of dried Italian or Creole seasoning. Put in the oven and bake at 350 for 15 min.
Recipe options: You can also substitute finely chopped garlic (for the dried Italian or Creole seasoning,) if you prefer garlic butter shrimp.
If you like to use "I can't believe it's not butter" instead of real butter, you can pour on one half of a cup of it melted, (1/2 Cup "ICBINB" equals 1 stick of real butter.) It melts very fast in the microwave, so watch it while it heats so it doesn't get a burnt taste.
This is a tasty quick meal idea for when you are busy:
If you put to boil one pot, about six to eight cups of water, before you begin getting the shrimp ready... after the shrimp is in the oven and the water has come to a boil:
You can remove two cups of the boiling water from the pot, carefully pouring it into a large glass measuring cup (glass preferably, so it doesn't melt like plastic might.)
Then you replace the remaining boiled water (in the pot) back on the stove, turn off the burner. Add frozen broccoli florets to the boiled water. Put the cover on and let it sit in the pot until the shrimp is done.
