We got a couple of pounds to throw in a crab boil but decided differently when the hunger approached and the crabs were still running around. A couple of big slices of toasted bread to soak up the butter is a good idea having around.
2 lbs 26-30 shrimp, peeled and deveined, tail left on
1 lemon, juiced
3-4 tablespoons salted butter
1 1/2 tablespoon old bay seasoning
Add lemon juice to shrimp and mix it well. Melt butter in a large frying pan. Add shrimp and old bay seasoning and cook until all shrimp is pink, around 5 minutes. Serve with toast.
