Easy Garlic Baked Shrimp

You had us at easy! Who doesn’t love a garlicky, buttery, white wine sauce? Especially when it’s packed with lean protein (i.e. shrimp). This recipe comes from one of our newest NECM partners, Kim Ma. It’s quick and only requires a few ingredients.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ pounds raw shrimp, peeled and de-veined
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 3 tablespoons white wine
  • Salt & pepper
  • ¼ cup (4 tablespoons) melted butter
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs (Panko or Italian)
  • 1–2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh Italian-leaf parsley, chopped

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F
  2. While the oven is pre-heating, combine the shrimp, garlic, and white wine in a mixing bowl and toss to combine
  3.  Transfer shrimp mixture to a 9×13 baking sheet/dish and lay out evenly. Season with salt and pepper
  4. In a bowl, stir together the melted butter and breadcrumbs then evenly over the shrimp
  5. Bake shrimp in the oven for about 7 minutes – until the shrimp start to turn pink – then switch the oven to Broil on High for about 2-3 minutes so the shrimp cook through and the breadcrumbs gets toasted, turning slightly golden
  6. Remove shrimp from oven. Add the final touches with a drizzle of lemon juice and sprinkle of parsley and your shrimp is ready to serve
