GOOD shrimp! However, this is one time when using the microwave is not the fastest way of preparing a recipe. Still using no water, and only 1 pan, I prepared it on the stovetop in less than half the time estimated for the microwave method. [Melt the butter, add your own personal desired amount of Old Bay Seasoning and the lemon juice. Add the shrimp and cook about 3 minutes, or until the shrimp turn pink.]

Very good. We really enjoyed this. They only had cooked shrimp at the store so I just heated it in the sauce. It was a little too salty for me. I would use less old bay and maybe add a little garlic next time.
