Beach Shrimp

This was an incredibly easy and DELICIOUS dish! It only took a few ingredients to make a great sauce for the shrimp. We served this dish with one full loaf of warm, crusty French bread to sop up the sauce. A side salad or roasted asparagus would have been great too. Next time, I plan to peel the shrimp- having to peel the shrimp before eating was a challenge for my hungry DB.
The website suggests that if you're at the beach, simply place all the ingredients in a large roasting pan for easy clean-up.

3–lb unpeeled, large raw shrimp*
1-1/2 Tbsp freshly ground pepper*
16-oz. bottle Italian dressing
2 garlic cloves, pressed
2 lemons, halved
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut up (I used 1/4 cup)

1. Place first 4 ingredients (shrimp through garlic) in a 13x9-inch baking dish, tossing to coat.

2. Squeeze juice from lemons over shrimp mixture, and stir. Add lemon halves to pan.
3. Sprinkle evenly with parsley; dot with butter.

4. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes. Serve in pan.

*3-lb. frozen peeled, large raw shrimp, thawed according to package directions, may be substituted. Prepare recipe as directed, reducing pepper to 1/2 tsp.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings
