3 Ingredient Lemon-Butter Shrimp

This is as easy as it gets!
A stick of butter, a lemon, and a packet
of dry Italian salad dressing mix are all
you need for the shrimp. 
 I keep bags of raw, frozen, deveined,
shrimp in the freezer so I can whip up
this simple dinner whenever I please.
You can use fresh or frozen shrimp. If frozen
just run cold water over them in a colander
 a few times to thaw. Remove shells and pat dry.
Melt the butter in a skillet or sheet pan
in a 350┬║ oven. Remove the pan and lay on
the lemon slices over the butter
Layer on the shrimp. Sprinkle the dry
Italian dressing mix evenly over the shrimp.
 Return the pan to the oven and bake for
15 minutes until opaque. 
 Some options: Add 2-3 garlic cloves, minced to
the butter, if you're garlic lovers like we are.
Add 1 15-oz can diced tomatoes, drained when
 you add the lemon. If you don't have fresh lemon,
 use 2-3 T refrigerated lemon juice in the butter.
 
Serve over pasta or have lots of warm
crusty French bread for 'sauce-dipping'.
