Baked Shrimp with a Spicy Herb Ghee Sauce
Serves: 4
  • 1 lb raw shrimp
  • ¼ cup ghee*
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp dried parsley or about 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Perfect Seasoning
  • Served over Cauliflower Rice or Parsnip Rice, sautéed peppers and steamed broccoli, optional
  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Peel and devein the shrimp. Remove the tails. Rinse and pat dry.
  3. Place shrimp in a small glass baking dish in a single layer so they fit snuggly.
  4. Sauté the ghee, garlic, parsley, lemon juice, and spicy seasoning in a small sauce pan over low heat for 2-3 minutes to combine all the flavors and heat through.
  5. Pour the mixture over the shrimp.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes. Flip shrimp over halfway through and baste with the sauce.
I also love these shrimp over Pesto Zoodles.

I prefer this sauce with ghee, but if you do not eat ghee feel free to substitute coconut oil.

If i'm in a rush sometimes I just sauté the shrimp in the ghee sauce in a large pan. The flavor tastes better baked, but this method works also.
