What's for Supper? Beach Shrimp

This easy baked shrimp dish will transport your taste buds to the beach no matter where you eat it.


At Southern Living, we think supper should be quick, easy, and delicious. Here's what's for supper. Hi, I'm Angela with the Southern Living test kitchen. Beach shrimp is the perfect recipe if you're headed to the beach or if you wanna get supper on the table quickly. It starts with three pounds of large, unpeeled shrimp. You can buy them with the shells on and cook them that way, this is the most cost effective. Keeping the shells on keeps the shrimp tender and saves you time, or you can peel them yourself or have your grocery store peel them for you. This may cost you, but eating them is much easier. If you choose to cook them this way, make sure you adjust the time and cook them a little less. Since this is a weeknight meal I'm gonna start with peeled shrimp. I wanna serve it over pasta and I don't wanna have to peel them after they've cooked. To prepare my shrimp I'll start by adding a bottle of my favorite Italian salad dressing, a half a teaspoon of pepper, and garlic. Because I'm starting with peeled shrimp I'm reducing the amount of pepper. And I'll toss these to combine them. Next, I'll squeeze fresh lemons over the shrimp, and you can just toss the halves right in with it. Next, I'll sprinkle it with parsley, and then dot it with my butter. Another great thing about this recipe is that it uses a convenience product, but it tastes completely fresh and homemade. I'll bake the shrimp at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes, and I'll stir half way through. To complete this meal, serve over pasta with a side of green beans and garlic bread.
