Baked Shrimp


  • 1 ¼ pounds extra large raw shrimp peeled and deveined
  • ¼ cup butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic 3-4 cloves
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon red pepper flakes or to taste (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley to garnish


  • 9×13 inch dish


  • In a small bowl, combine the melted butter with garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  • Add the shrimp to a 9×13 dish, toss with the butter mixture and spread in an even layer.
  • Bake at 350°F (180°C) for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, sprinkle with red pepper flakes if desired, and garnish with chopped parsley.


  1. Serving. The shrimp portion is usually ⅓ pound per person if peeled, if you’re buying unpeeled raw shrimp then about 1 pound per person.
  2. Don’t Overlap the Shrimp. They’ll cook most evenly if they each have their own space in the baking dish.
