I remember watching some kid devour shrimp cocktail at a restaurant a few years ago and someone commented, “KIDS GO CRAZY FOR SHRIMP!”

um.

Not mine. 

But then something happened a few weeks ago. My son tried some buffalo wing style shrimp (oof) and loved it. Now he wants shrimp when we’re out to eat and hogs all the shrimp tempura. Be careful what you wish for 😉

If you think I’m overreacting, I just sat here and thought about it.

It’s been 9 years since I’ve been able to make a shrimp dish for my whole family.

I suppose this is when I chime in with a Better late than never.

My Mom used to make this dish. Of course, she did, it was one of the simplest recipes from her beloved Ina Garten!  I love that food can sometimes feel like a hug from your Mom. I sure needed it the past few weeks.

Oh, and did I mention this sauce on this dish? It’s lemon buttery garlicky goodness. You’re going to want to sop up every last bit with bread. Promise.

Ingredients are gathered.

Lemon Garlic Roasted Shrimp

recipe adapted from Make it Ahead by Ina Garten

  • 1 large lemon
  • fresh chopped parsley, for garnish

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Melt the butter over low heat in a medium (10-inch) saute pan. Add the olive oil, garlic,  red pepper flakes, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper and cook over low heat for one minute. Remove from heat and add the zest of one lemon into the butter mixture.

Arrange the shrimp snugly in one layer in a 10 × 13-inch baking dish with only the tails overlapping. Pour the butter mixture over the shrimp. Season with salt and pepper. Slice the ends off the zested lemon, cut into 5 slices, and tuck them among the shrimp. Roast for 12 to 15 minutes, just until the shrimp are firm, pink, and cooked through.  Sprinkle top with chopped parsley for garnish. Serve hot with the toasted bread for dipping into the garlic butter.
