Lemon Shrimp {TWC Linky Party #90 - Seafood}

It's time for seafood week on THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS Linky Party. Anyone who knows me knows, I do NOT, repeat, do NOT like seafood. I eat nothing from the sea at ALL, so this week I had to step out and make something for my girls. My daughters on the other hand love love love all kinds of seafood, my oldest son and my husband do too and well my youngest boy, that is still up for debate. He loves popcorn shrimp, fish sticks and that's about it so far, but my other ones will eat it all.
My boys were actually in June Lake, California this entire week for their annual BOYS ONLY fishing trip. This has been an annual trip for many years dating as far back as when my father use to go when I was a little girl. Now, my husband has been going for the past 14 years and both our boys have gotten to join in this awesome trip.  All of the boys in the family go cousins, uncles, friends and more.  They all really really love it and I know they have the best time bonding, fishing, camping and having guy time. They have already taught my son "what happens in June Lake, stays in June Lake". I know they don't get into too much trouble there, but it's still very funny (and my little guy tells his mama everything). This year my son, my 13 year old son caught the BIGGEST fish EVER, in the history of our family going to June Lake (which is about 25+ years of fishing). Not only did he win the annual jackpot amoung the "boys" of $150 bucks, his fish was so big (8lbs 7oz), it was the biggest fish caught in the lake this season and it is the biggest cut-throst fish that the entire lake has seen in at least the last 5 years. He was one happy BOY and I am one PROUD MAMA! ANy of you fisherman, watch for a picture that might be features in Outdoor Wilderness Magazine.

Lemon Shrimp
this recipe is sweeping the Pinterest Board - but with links to no where

1 package frozen shrimp, defrost
1 stick butter, melted
1 to 2 lemons
1 tbsp Herb de Provence

Melt one stick (1/2 cup) of butter and spread onto a cookie sheet (with a lip), thinly slice 1-2 lemons and lay on top of the butter. Lay shrimp on top of the lemon/butter mixture and sprinkle with herb de provence spice.

Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or until shrimp is cooked. We decided to fry the shrimp up a little after we removed it from the oven. We poured the shrimp, lemons and all the butter into a skillet and cooked for about 2 to 4 minutes before servings.

This recipe is very LEMON'y. So, if you don't like a strong lemon taste I would use onely 1 lemon (or even a half of a lemon).
