Cooking – Baked Buttery Garlicky Shrimp


Buttery, peppery, garlicky shrimp. Prefect as a snack or entree, and easy to make. The side dish are sauteed micro green pea shoots.
We said it is easy, correct? One lb of sliced butter layering the bottom of a cast iron skillet and cover completely with fresh cracked pepper. Layer de-veined uncooked and unpeeled shrimp over the butter, smear tablespoon of diced garlic over the shirmp, sprinkle with one teaspoon of smoked paprika. Top with another 1 lb of sliced butter, cover fully with more fresh cracked pepper. Bake At 450 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes. Pull and eat.

New years eve and football bowl season provides a plethora of party recipes. We found this one touted as a NYE snack. To be honest, it is a little messy for a party if served in the cast iron skillet used to cook it in. But, Beth and I thought this was a great entree to be served with our first harvest of micro-green pea shoots as a side dish.

There was plenty of the buttery juice left over. We saved it for the next day and made a meatless shrimp flavored linguini with the juice. It was fabulous!
