Italian Shrimp and Roasted Cauliflower

September 28, 2016, posted by Gina – If you read this blog often you know I am always searching for fabulous recipes. I recently found a couple that I put together to make a meal that we loved.  These items are good for a weeknight meal and all I can say is purchase extra shrimp.



1 stick butter*
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1-pound raw shrimp, shells removed but tails still on
1 packet dry Italian Seasoning


Preheat oven to 350°.  Melt one stick butter in the bottom of a 13 x 9 baking dish.

Lay lemon slices over butter. Place shrimp on top. Sprinkle with Italian Seasoning.

*I feel like the whole stick of butter is not necessary.  Try ½ or even ¼ …. you will still get the moisture and the flavor.

Bake for 15 minutes and that’s it!!

If you want to double this recipe, just make sure that the shrimp are not on top of each other once you spread them out.  You could bake these on a rimmed baking sheet that is larger than the 13 x 9.
