Baked Herb Lemon Shrimp
1 pound raw shrimp, peeled with tails on
3/4 stick butter, softened
2 garlic cloves
1/2 cup parsley leaves
juice of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
salt to taste
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Combine the butter, garlic, parsley, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, and salt in a food processor and pulse to combine. Arrange the shrimp in a single layer on a baking sheet. Dot the butter mixture on top of the shrimp. Bake the shrimp in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until cooked through.
Remove from oven and transfer shrimp to a large bowl. Pour any extra sauce over the shrimp. Garnish with chopped parsley and a few lemon slices. Serve with crusty bread for dipping in the extra butter sauce.
