Lemon Butter Shrimp with Spaghetti

Serves: 4

Ingredients: 3 TBSP unsalted butter; 1 envelope dry Italian dressing mix (wish bone or other), divided; 2 lbs shrimp (raw, shelled/deveined, prefer 20-25 size); 2 lemons; Pan Spray if using a skillet instead


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Prepare a large sheet pan with parchment paper (or foil). Spread shrimp out evenly on the pan. Cut butter into smaller pieces and place among the shrimp. Sprinkle with ½ the seasoning packet and place in the oven for 12-15 minutes.
  3. When shrimp is pink all the way through, remove from oven. Toss shrimp around in pan to make sure butter/dressing mix is evenly coated everywhere.
  4. Zest and juice one lemon and sprinkle on shrimp. Juice and zest remaining lemon as desired.
  5. *note* Can be made in a skillet with all the ingredients as well.
