Lemon Thyme Shrimp and Rice

I found a recipe for baked shrimp on Pinterest.  I usually don’t cook shrimp often, but this looked delicious.. shrimp swimming in tons of olive oil and butter!

I first heated the olive oil in the oven with lemon zest and fresh thyme, and then added the shrimp, butter, lemon slices, salt and pepper, and more fresh thyme and baked for about 10 minutes.   You don’t need to use fresh spices, but ever since using fresh thyme in my chicken and wild rice soup a few months ago I have been in love with fresh thyme!

I served the shrimp on brown rice that I prepared with sun dried tomatoes, baby spinach, and more fresh thyme.
