Oven Baked Lemon Garlic Shrimp, a delicious and simple to make recipe that is a perfect entrée for your family dinners or large group parties.
I have always liked Ree Drummond's (aka The Pioneer Woman) recipes. Her recipes are always so delicious and easy to follow. Last week, I decided to get some shrimps for dinner. We don't often have shrimps for our meals and I thought I'd change things up a bit. And I immediately thought of an episode of "The Pioneer Woman" where Ree made this super easy Oven Baked Lemon Garlic Shrimps.
It was so quick and easy to prepare. And because I like to keep after meals clean up to a minimum, I popped in a tray of broccoli that was drizzled with olive oil and seasoned with black pepper, salt and oregano leaves together with the shrimps in the oven.
In 20 minutes, dinner was ready and boy, were the shrimps delicious! I served the shrimps and broccoli with some bread for the kids to dip into the hot and bubbly butter sauce. They absolutely loved it!
