If you are a big fan of seafood you will love this recipe for baked shrimp. One of the best parts about shrimp is it doesn’t take very long to cook. The cook time for this recipe is only 15 minutes. Even better you can be eating this dish within a half hour. I would recommend using larger shrimp for this recipe but medium will work as well. The cooking process is very simple, the shrimp are first placed in a baking dish and then topped with a sauce and baked. The shrimp gets its flavor from garlic and lemon juice; and what would a shrimp dish be without a little heat? Hot pepper sauce and Cajun seasonings are added for just the right amount of kick. If you want a little sauce, you could double the sauce mixture; maybe serve the shrimp with pasta? It’s totally up to you. Enjoy.
