Creating this delectable meal is as easy as pie. Whether you choose fresh or frozen shrimp doesn’t matter, as long as they’re peeled and deveined. Add to that, a generous portion of melted butter, thinly sliced tangy lemons, and a sprinkle of flavorful Italian seasoning, and you’re on the highway to culinary bliss.
To assemble, simply layer your sheet pan with the lemon slices, top them with the shrimp, and then drizzle the melted butter all over.

1 1/2 pounds of shrimp, fresh or frozen (ensure it’s thawed), peeled and deveined
1/2 cup of unsalted butter (equivalent to 1 stick), melted into liquid gold
3 vibrant lemons, thinly sliced
1 packet (0.7 oz.) of your favorite Italian seasoning
Steps to Culinary Heaven:
Begin by preheating your oven to 350º F. In the meantime, line your baking sheet with either aluminum foil or parchment paper for an easy cleanup later.
Next, arrange the lemon slices in an even layer on your prepared baking sheet, and then graciously top them with the shrimp.
It’s time to add the luxurious melted butter. Pour it generously over the shrimp, ensuring all pieces get a good bath.
To bring in that aromatic Italian countryside feel, sprinkle the Italian seasoning all over your shrimp.
Once everything is ready, place your baking sheet in the oven. Allow it to bake for 13-15 minutes, or until your shrimp turn a beautiful shade of pink and become opaque.
And there you have it, a heavenly, quick, and tasty meal.
