Buttered Shrimp

We were at the Carolina coast this past weekend and shrimp was everywhere. Right off the shrimp boats onto the back of our cars. So fresh and so tasty.
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.
