Ingredients for Baked Shrimp with Garlic Lemon Butter Sauce
Extra large raw shrimp – large or jumbo size will work too just adjust bake time slightly (give or take).
Butter – salted or unsalted will work here.
Garlic – use fresh garlic for best results.
Lemon juice – don’t use the bottled stuff here only fresh.
Salt and pepper
Red pepper flakes – if you don’t like heat omit them, if you love heat add extra.
Fresh parsley – not only will this add color but a light herby flavor that pairs well with lemon.
