BARBECUED SHRIMP


2 pounds shrimp, unpeeled
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice
4 cloves garlic, crushed *( I substituted with the minced garlic you find in the produce section) 
1 heaping tablespoon Italian seasoning


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Arrange shrimp in a shallow casserole.  Combine all remaining ingredients.  Pour over shrimp.  Bake for 30 minutes or until done.  Serve in soup bowls. Dip toasted French bread in sauce.  Serves 4 to 6.

MARINATED BEEF TENDERLOIN

4 cloves garlic, crushed ( I substituted with the chopped garlic found in the produce section of grocery)
1 t. salt
1 t. pepper
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup red wine
1 t. dried whole thyme
1 bay leaf

Mix marinade in a large shallow dish.  Marinade the tenderloin over night, turning occasionally.  Before baking, drain off marinade.  Place tenderloin in baking pan with no cover.  Bake at 425 for one hour, until meat thermometer reads 150 degrees.  * For more rare results, bake for 50 minutes.
