Baked Breaded Shrimp
This is the LAST meal I will be making in our apartment! Tomorrow we close on our new house and I probably won't be cooking much for the next two weeks. We are hoping to be 100% in the house shortly after Christmas, so hopefully I will be back to regular cooking then.
This meal is simple. I love breaded shrimp and for awhile it was the only type of shrimp I would eat. These were pretty good. I didn't fry them which makes them a lot lighter, however it does compromise the taste a bit. Next time I make these I would make some type of dipping sauce- probably Cajun Ranch. I think they were missing something really good to dip them in!
Raw, peeled and deviened shrimp (I used about 20 of the jumbo shrimp)
Italian seasoned bread crumbs
Salt & pepper to taste
1- Preheat the oven to 400.
2- Season the shrimp with salt and pepper. Dip each shrimp individually into the flour, then egg, then bread crumbs.
3- Place on a greased cooking sheet.
4- Spray shrimp with EVOO spray.
5- Bake until tails are pink and shrimp are cooked.
