Since we’re rarely home for Christmas, we don’t have a traditional Christmas Eve meal. I wanted to have something special that didn’t require hours in the kitchen. We both love shrimp but almost always grill it. Grilling and Omaha winters don’t mix. I did a quick search and found this recipe. I read it several times and read the reviews. Although it almost seemed too simple and easy, I was sold. Well simple or easy would not be the first word I would use to describe this recipe, delicious would be!

INGREDIENTS::
1 lb. raw shrimp, cleaned, peeled and deveined
8 Tbs. butter (1 stick), melted
3 cloves garlic, minced (my addition)
1 packet of Good Seasons Italian all natural seasoning
1 1/2 lemon, sliced into circles
1 Tbs. dried parsley leaves
1 tsp. black pepper, ground

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a small bowl, mix the melted butter with minced garlic, and pour into a 9×111 inch glass casserole dish, spreading it all over the bottom of the dish.
