Ingredients

  • 1 pound shrimp , use at least medium size
  • 1/2 cup margarine or butter
  • 4 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. 
  •  Place the margarine in a 13 x 9 baking pan, and then place the pan in the oven. While the pan is in the oven wash and peel shrimp. Devein the shrimp. By the time you have finished prepping the shrimp, the margarine should be melted in the pan.
  •  In a small bowl mix together the spices and blend well. Place shrimp into the pan, and then sprinkle on the seasonings you have just blended together on the shrimp. Mix the shrimp, margarine, and spices until the shrimp is coated well with margarine and shrimp. Bake for approximately 15 minutes, remove shrimp and check for doneness. 
  • The shrimp should be pink when done. So, our recipe uses margarine, as most restaurants use margarine because it is less expensive than butter. If you really want to try to ramp up this recipe use butter instead of margarine. Be sure to serve the shrimp with fresh lemon wedges.
