Lemon Garlic Shrimp

Shrimp is an old family friend of ours. There's not a birthday, holiday or family occasion that goes by with out it.
So for New Year's Eve we tried this recipe for the first time and we were in shrimp garlic heaven.

You will need:
- 2 pounds Raw Shrimp, deviened
- 2 sticks Cold Butter, cut up
- 1 teaspoon Sea Salt
- 4 Garlic Cloves, Peeled
- 1/4 Cup Fresh Parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed Red Pepper
- 1 Lemon, juiced

Preheat oven 375 degrees. Rinse frozen shrimp and arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet.

In your food processor, add cold butter pieces garlic, lemon juice, salt, parsley and crushed red pepper. Pulse until combined and sprinkle over the shrimp. Bake until shrimp is cooked and the butter sauce is hot and bubbly, about 30 minutes.

If you really want to out do yourself, toast some french bread and dip it in the butter sauce.
MERCY! Its so good. Probably my favorite food ever.

P.S. Thank you Ree Drummond for the amazing recipe.

How many does this serve? I want to make it for just my husband and I, and 2 lbs seems like a lot of shrimp!

Well, we had it as a side dish for 8 adults. And it went quickly. So if it is your main dish I'd say you could cut it down to half, at least!

But I don't know...they are so good...once you start....it is hard to stop!
