Shrimp Two Ways

Shrimp Two Ways

Hope everyone had a lovely New Year! This quick and simple dish reminds me of the shrimp I had when I was in Hawaii at one of the famous shrimp food trucks on the North Shore. My favorite flavors were the spicy shrimp and the lemon pepper shrimp. So this is my quick and simple version of them.

 

What You Need:

1 bag of fresh, unpeeled shrimp (you can use cooked but it won’t soak up the flavors as well)

Lemon Juice

Garlic (4 cloves, chopped)

Vegan Butter

Salt and Pepper

Hot Sauce

What To Do:

Peel and devein the shrimp. Place them on a baking pan with vegan butter in mini chunks (I just put a few blobs around so that it would melt while the shrimp are cooking). Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

On half the tray, cover the shrimp with lemon juice, garlic, and extra pepper. On the other half, cover the shrimp in hot sauce. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes, flip and cook for 5 more. Depending on the size of your shrimp will determine the cooking time.
