Italian Shrimp Bake

Italian Shrimp Bake: I make it a point to eat seafood of some kind at least once a week. Some of my favorite fish tacos, grilled salmon, and baked shrimp are among my favorite meals.

Fresh (or frozen and thawed) shrimp are combined with melted butter, homemade Italian seasoning, and lemon slices in this delectable shrimp recipe.

The shrimp are then roasted until they are juicy and soft. A flavorful, lighter choice for supper or an appetizer that comes together quickly and can be served in a number of ways.

This simple baked shrimp recipe is sure to please any shrimp lover. The most wonderful sauce is made with just butter, lemon juice, and Italian seasoning; it goes well with pasta or rice.

FAQs AND Questions




  • It is really simple to bake shrimp! Here’s a brief summary of the steps; to view the recipe card at the bottom of the page, click the link.


  • Mix the ingredients together. Toss to make sure the shrimp are well coated with butter and Italian seasoning. Transfer all ingredients into a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.


  • Cook. Bake the shrimp for 9 to 13 minutes, or until they are cooked through, at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. When cooked, they will be opaque and rosy.


  • Assist. Add some fresh parsley on top and serve the heated shrimp with sauce spooned over them. We adore eating crusty bread, rice, or pasta with the shrimp and lemon butter sauce! Excellent!




  • Raw shrimp will have a grayish color. As it bakes, it will turn an opaque, whitish pink color. Shrimp doesn’t take too long to bake—just about 10 minutes (maybe a little less)! Be sure to watch it closely.


  • When fully cooked, shrimp will curl into a loose “C” shape. If they have curled up into a tight “O” shape, then the shrimp is most likely overcooked. (An undercooked shrimp will still have some grayish spots on them and form more of a flexible “U” shape.)
