Shrimp are delicious on their own but add this rich herb butter drizzle and they become mouthwatering morsels that you’ll crave again and again! Roasted lemon herb shrimp are delicious as an appetizer or tossed onto a salad as the main dish.

This is one of our favorites to throw together for various events, potluck, tailgating, etc. We don’t worry about trying to keep the shrimp warm or spoilage because they’re the first to be gobbled down!
