large shrimp - peeled and deveined
Old Bay Seasoning TM
GOOD shrimp! However, this is one time when using the microwave is not the fastest way of preparing a recipe. Still using no water, and only 1 pan, I prepared it on the stovetop in less than half the time estimated for the microwave method. [Melt the butter, add your own personal desired amount of Old Bay Seasoning and the lemon juice. Add the shrimp and cook about 3 minutes, or until the shrimp turn pink.]
This was way to much trouble, I should have used other cooks idea's and used the skillet
Very good. We really enjoyed this. They only had cooked shrimp at the store so I just heated it in the sauce. It was a little too salty for me. I would use less old bay and maybe add a little garlic next time.
Great recipe! Very easy, very tasty.
You can cut the fat/cals by substituting out half of the butter with broth (veggie or chicken, either one..or even just water with bullion). It doesn't affect the flavor too much, and is so much healthier!
This is the best receipe for shrimp that I have ever used. Not using water, keeps all the flavor in the shrimp.
Loved this recipe! I made it on the stove as well with partially cooked shrimp from the grocery. Cut down the old bay a little. Absolutely delicious!
Delicious! The 5 of us loved it, including children ages 5, 8 & 10. I did half the amount of Old Bay and thought it was perfect - not too salty but still with a kick. If using the full amount of Old Bay, use unsalted butter or it will be too salty. Thanks for a great recipe!
