Baked Shrimp

I love this baked shrimp recipe because it doesn’t require defrosting the shrimp prior to baking. I always have frozen shrimp on hand, but I’m not very good at remembering to defrost them. This simple recipe dresses the shrimp with a tasty mixture of butter and seasonings. Baked to perfection, and ready in just ten minutes, shrimp are a super healthy fast food.
