I just love seafood! If there is one thing that I totally miss from my Savannah, Georgia Days (other than my friends and family, of course) it would be the fresh wild caught seafood that we caught straight from the ocean! Today I am sharing my favorite way to cook shrimp. This shrimp recipe is made with a homemade lemon pepper sauce (no I am not talking about lemon pepper seasoning, I like this sauce as fresh as you can get it)! Shrimp and lemon go hand and hand and the two flavors compliment each other so nicely. So the next time you get your hands on some delicious wild caught shrimp, give this recipe a try. I promise it will not disappoint!
- 1 pound wild caught large shrimp (peeled and deveined)
- Juice of 1/2 of a fresh lemon

- 1/4 tsp black pepper

- Baste the other side of the shrimp and cook for another 4-5 minutes or until the shrimp turns pink and is cooked through.
