My Spicy Buttered Shrimp

Does anyone spend hours slaving over a hot stove anymore? I sure don't. My spicy buttered shrimp is one of my go-to recipes to make when I'm crunched for time because it's affordable and incredibly simple to prepare. You can even cut down on prep time by asking your local fishmonger to devein them for you. I hope you enjoy making these as much I do. Enjoy!

1 lb. of uncooked, shrimp, (unpeeled & deveined) 
2 sticks of butter
Freshly ground black pepper 
6 cloves of garlic, crushed 
Finely grated lime zest and juice of 1 lime 
Cayenne pepper 
Red pepper flakes 
1 Bouillon cube
Finely chopped parsley or cilantro 
2 sprigs of thyme
Lime wedges and crusty bread, to serve

Melt butter to completely submerge the shrimp. Place shrimp in a medium sized saucepan and pour butter mixture over them. Add lime juice, zest, thyme, garlic, bouillon cube, a hefty dose of ground black pepper, cayenne pepper, and pepper flakes. Then bake for 15-20 minutes or until the shrimp turns rosy pink.

Just before serving, sprinkle with a handful of parsley or cilantro. Serve hot with lime wedges and lots of crusty bread.
