I'm always on the hunt for easy weeknight dinners. The evenings are always so slammed and more often than not I'd be very happy with a small cheese plate or a bowl of cereal and call it a night. I know this isn't healthy or facilitating of a family dinner atmosphere, but unless something is simple and quick, it's just not happening.
Enter this garlicky shrimp. We made this with fresh shrimp from the farm market (and by we I mean Shaun), but it could just as easily be prepared with precooked frozen shrimp from the grocery store (we always have a bag on hand).
Shaun picked up some crusty bread that he broiled with a bit of butter and more garlic in order to soak up the sauce. Super easy and comforting, a great weeknight dinner to take you through to the cold weather days ahead. I hope you enjoy!

1 lb shrimp, peeled & deveined
1/4 C lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
2 Tbsp butter, melted
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp dried parsley
ingredients for crusty bread:
bread of your choice
1/2 Tbsp butter
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray baking dish with cooking spray and lay shrimp in dish. In a small bowl, combine lemon juice, butter, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Pour evenly over the shrimp. Bake 8-10 minutes and prep the bread. When the shrimp is done, sprinkle with parsley
To make the bread, lay it on a baking sheet. Butter and sprinkle with garlic powder. Broil for 2 minutes (but watch the bread as it broils so as not to burn it!). Serve immediately with the shrimp.
