Butterflied Garlic Shrimp

There are two things I love about this recipe. The butter looks like it would be fantastic to dip some good bread in. Second–you can make this in a toaster oven. Can you say hello tasty dorm eating!

Don’t forget this recipe calls for you to use raw shrimp. Make sure they are peeled and deveined before you cook with them.

3. Lay shrimp on the foil line tray and generously brush each side with garlic butter.
