Inside The Kitchen: Shrimp Appetizer With Lemon And Garlic

When my mother makes surf and turf on holidays – this is the recipe she uses for the shrimp. You can also serve it as an appetizer or add it to lemon spaghetti for a full meal.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound raw shrimp cleaned and butterflied
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tbs breadcrumbs
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • Half of a lemon zested and juiced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Clean and butterfly your shrimp. They should look like the above picture.

Toss in a bowl with the rest of the ingredients.

Line a sheet with foil and spread shrimp out evenly.

Cook until pink – 10 to 12 minutes. Don’t overcook. You know your oven – keep an eye out on it.

And serve!! My mother suggests to make a double batch. These go very quickly!!
