Baked Buffalo Shrimp
I love quick and easy dinners. This shrimp takes about 5 minutes to prepare and that is being generous, and it only takes 15 minutes to bake.
This recipe is reminiscent of one of our favorites, Lemon-Butter Shrimp. I said that exact statement to Ethan, and his response was, "Oh yeah, that recipe. Everyone raved about that and loved it." There was definitely a sound of so, why aren't we making that for dinner instead?
During dinner, he said he thought this recipe was better. I am not sure about better, because they are both so, so, good. This shrimp gets a kick from the buffalo sauce and amazing flavor from the Greek seasoning. You should definitely put a loaf of crusty bread in the oven for the last five minutes to warm up for dipping in the sauce. We served this with a side salad and dinner was ready. This is a perfect weeknight meal.

2 Lemons, sliced
1 lb. of Shrimp, shell removed, tail on
2 tablespoons of Greek Seasoning
1 stick of Butter, melted
1/2 cup of Hot Sauce, like Frank's
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and prepare a baking sheet, double line it with aluminum foil.
Now, spread the sliced lemons on the baking sheet; top with shrimp. Spread the seasoning on top of the shrimp, drizzle the butter on top, and then drizzle with hot sauce.
Bake for 15 minutes. When it comes out of the oven, give it a big stir to mix it all together.
