Super easy, right? As usual, ingredients can be adjusted to taste! Top with hot sauce for a spicy kick or swap out the Old Bay for cajun seasoning. I tend to cook my shrimp for longer than the suggested 5 minutes. Here is a link to the FDA recommendations on safe selection and handling of seafood.

Throw this over a bed of rice and serve with a side of baked asparagus or toss over lettuce/mixed greens for a super easy meal. If you are looking to make a healthier version of this recipe, try swapping out the butter for olive oil.

To make this recipe on the grill: Cut the butter/oil then simply combine the seasonings and cover shrimp. I have grilled these on a kabob or by placing on foil. You can add a bit of butter/oil and lemon after cooking if desired. Throw this on next to your steak and have a perfect summer surf-n-turf dinner!
