Oven Baked Shrimp With Black Pepper Recipe

Oven Baked Shrimp With Black Pepper Recipe
I found this oven baked shrimp recipe written on a piece of paper in the back of a second hand cook book. I tried it, made a few changes and have been making to for 15 years or more. It has just a few ingredients and requires a lot of newspaper for the buttery shrimp peels.


4 lbs fresh shrimp, fresh, tails only, deveined, unpeeled*
1 stick Butter or margarine, melted
4 tblspn fresh lemon juice
5 tblspn fresh ground black pepper
Melt butter or margarine in a medium pan.


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Pour melted butter over shrimp which has been placed in a large baking dish. Make sure shrimp is well coated with butter. Sprinke black pepper over shrimp, stir and spread shrimp to edge of pan. Bake in 400° F. oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until done. Shrimp shells will be pink.

Spread newspaper over table and enjoy. Beer hits the spot with this fun dish.

Serves 8

*The key to the goodness of this shrimp dish is fresh, not frozen shrimp
