When Mom Gives Me Lemons...

I make Lemon Shrimp. was so good.  If you like lemon with your crustaceans, you will love this dish.  I don't think you would should eat the lemons but if you want to - go for it (as my dear husband did).  I served this over hot steamed rice, a salad with a light vinaigrette and homemade bread.

Lemon Butter Shrimp
adapted from:

3 lemons, thinly sliced
1 pound tail-off UNcooked shrimp
12oz bay scallops (my addition)
1/2 cup melted butter (used 3/4 cup, since I added the extra seafood)
1 pkg Italian dressing mix (the dry stuff)

Preheat oven to 400. Place in a large roasting pan.  Place seafood in pan.  Drizzle with butter.  Sprinkle with dressing mix; top with lemon slices.  Bake uncovered 15-20minutes (until shrimp is pink).  (NOTE: I covered the pan, since I did not want it to dry out.)
