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)
1 egg
Italian seasoned bread crumbs
EVOO spray
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.


  1. These were real good. I can't wait to eat them Cajun style. I'm excited about the new house!

  2. yay for the house! boo for no more blogging for a while!

    u make me want to eat shrimp. =d *slurp*

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love anything breaded, and I love shrimp, so these look great!

  4. I Know I'm About 3 Years Late But Guuurl I Just Made These 2day & They Were Sooo Good. Thanx 4 The Recipe Steph.

  5. How long do you cook them for? And what is EVOO spray? Do you think it will work if I use regular cooking spray?

    1. EVOO is extra virgin olive oil spray, but any cooking spray is fine. I'd say about 10 minutes or so, depends on how big the shrimp are! Once the tails are fully pink and the breading is crisp your good to go.

  6. This meal is simple.. but It makes a great appetizer with dipping sauce..
