After lots of eating out, take out and a few crockpot dinners I decided I might put a little more effort into tonight’s dinner. But not too much, I don’t want to over exert myself considering I already went to the gym today. 😉
Tell me – will it ever not be a chore to go to the gym???
I’m thinking no.
I just don’t get all those people who love working out.
It’s weird. (no offense to my working out friends)
I wish I were weird.
Sorry – back to dinner. So tonight I’m making Baked Shrimp Scampi. Nice and simple.
Baked Shrimp Scampi
- 1 cup butter
- 2 tablespoons prepared Dijon-style mustard
- 2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (I used dry because it’s what I had)
- 1.5 – 2 pounds raw shrimp, shelled and deveined
Preheat oven to 450º.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the butter, mustard, lemon juice, garlic, and parsley. When the butter melts completely, remove from heat.
Arrange shrimp in a shallow baking dish. Pour the butter mixture over the shrimp. Stir to coat.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the shrimp are pink and opaque.
Serve over angel hair pasta. Top with parsley and squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
Like I said. Nice and easy. Not to mention quite tasty! I very much enjoyed this meal! To make it even better we finished dinner off with an old fashioned Strawberry Shortcake!
Nothing beats a childhood favorite!
