Broiled Lemon & Garlic Shrimp

I love shrimp, but I feel like it is hard to find new recipes for shrimp so I am usually stuck making the same recipes over and over again. I liked this recipe because it was a bit different, even though it was just another lemon shrimp recipe. Broiling the shrimp gave it a different texture and kept the lemon and garlic flavor really strong. This recipe is quick and easy with great results, definitely one to try.

Broiled Lemon and Garlic Shrimp

Serves 6

  • 1.5 lb jumbo shrimp (peeled and deveined)
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • Pepper
Directions:
  1. Preheat the broiler on high.
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan and saute for a minute or so with the garlic.
  3. Add the lemon juice and mix well.
  4. Butterfly the shrimp and place on a cookie sheet.
  5. Brush the butter mixture over the shrimp and sprinkle with cheese and pepper.
  6. Broil in the oven until cooked through (about 4-5 minutes).
