Easy Lemon & Dill Shrimp Recipe

This recipe is really simple and one of my favorites!

Serves: 2


  • 1/2 pound of shrimp
  • 2 teaspoons of  Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon of Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon of Dill
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon of Lemon Zest

To be honest, we don’t usually measure our seasonings. So the lemon and dill were basically to our tastes. I am a huge lemon fan so we ended up just using an entire half of lemon.


  1. Choose a skillet large enough to lay the shrimp flat, if necessary use two skillets
  2. Heat half of the butter and add shrimp
  3. Season shrimp with salt and pepper
  4. Let the shrimp cook for about 2 minutes then flip
  5. Add the remaining butter
  6. Cook for another 2 minutes or until cooked
  7. Add the zest, lemon juice, and dill
  8. Serve and Enjoy!

We served ours with Zucchini seasoned with some salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Anything will really pair nicely with this.

    I’m honestly not that good of a cook and peeling off shrimp is a lot of work so I stay away from it… but this recipe looks promising! I want to try it!

    I am not a fan of shrimp, but my hubby is. This might be a recipe worth trying for him! It’s always fun to find new recipes like this, just for something different from the normal menu.

    I used to enjoy shrimp a lot, until my family decided they were tired of it. I should buy some again and make your recipe. Delicioso!
