French Market Citrus Shrimp


Two of the first things that always captures my senses when I walk into the French Market in New Orleans are the wonderful aromas and gorgeous colors of all the citrus fruits.

I combined my love of all things citrus with a sprinkling of Creole seasoning to make a delicious baked shrimp appetizer.

1 pound of medium or large shrimp, shelled and deveined
1 orange, thinly sliced
2 lemons, thinly sliced
2 limes, thinly sliced
3 T. butter, melted
1 - 2 T. Creole seasoning

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with foil and arrange the sliced fruit on the sheet.  

Next place the shrimp on top of the fruit and sprinkle with the Creole seasoning and slowly drizzle with the melted butter.  

Bake for 5 - 7 minutes until cooked through. Serve immediately.
