Shrimp Scampi Bake

Finally getting around to posting something. I actually have several recipes I would like to post but the pictures just seem to get into the way and keep me from posting. So, I have decided that I will post and if I ever get a good picture when I make it again I will add it. If not you will just have to leave it to your imagination.
This is an easy delicious recipe that I found on I had some shrimp and didn't know what to do with them as I am not that big on shrimp and didn't want to deep fry them to please husband so this is what I did. I am now a fan of shrimp done this way. I used regular yellow mustard and left out the parsley. Not low calorie but worth it. I cut the recipe in half for our meal but the following is the full recipe

Shrimp Scampi Bake

1 Cup butter
2 TBS Dijon-style mustard (any mustard you like will do)
1 TBS fresh lemon juice
1 TBS chopped garlic
1 TBS chopped fresh parsley, optional and I didn't use any
2 pounds medium , raw shrimp, shelled, deveined with or without tails.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine all ingredients except the shrimp. When the butter melts completely, remove from heat. Arrange shrimp in a shallow baking dish. Pour the butter mixture over the shrimp. Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until the shrimp are pink and opaque. Serves six.
