I always have shrimp in my freezer. I can guarantee an appetizer or dinner on the table in less than 20 minutes when I know that I have some shrimp on hand. This garlic and lemon shrimp appetizer takes no time to put together and is ready in less than 15 minutes. It goes from oven to table, and requires no kitchen clean up. I often serve this as an appetizer with lots of crusty bread to dip into the buttery sauce.
