Fairly light, yummy and very easy! Fairly light, yummy and very easy!
Number of Servings: 2


    14 shrimp, medium (26 to 30 per pound count, peeled and de-veined)
    1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    1/2 clove garlic, minced
    2 dashes light salt
    1/4 tsp Creole seasoning
    2 dashes fresh ground pepper
    1/8 cup Panko breadcrumbs
    1 tbsp shredded parmesan cheese
    1 squirt butter flavored cooking spray


Recipe is calculated for 2 servings of 7 shrimp each. PHDH approval rating = "Keeper!" Served myself 5 and him 9. That was more than enough for me.

I used regular plain breadcrumbs the first time. Based on feedback, I tried Panko and have updated the recipe accordingly. Both work nicely. Stats with regular breadcrumbs: 146 cals, 9g fat, 1.9g saturated fat, 67mg cholesterol, 370mg sodium, 182.7mg potassium, 5.7g carbs, .3g fiber, .4g sugar, 10.6g protein.

PH's shortcuts/subs used in nutritional calculation: Organics Extra Virgin Olive Oil, pre-peeled raw frozen shrimp (thawed), pre-minced jarred garlic, Morton Lite Salt Mixture, Emeril's Bayou Blend creole, Lucerne pre-shredded fresh Parmesan, NutsOnline Bulk Pepper.


PREP TIME DOES NOT COUNT 30 MINUTES OF MARINADE NOR PEELING OF SHRIMP. I've used both fresh and thawed pre-peeled shrimp.

Put shrimp, garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper, and creole seasoning into a Ziploc baggie. Gently flip bag in all directions until shrimp is well coated. Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

Add bread crumbs and Parmesan to baggie and gently turn to coat.

Arrange shrimp in single layer in ungreased 8x8 baking pan so that they're not touching. Spray quickly with butter flavored cooking spray.

Broil for approximately 10 minutes until done. Serve immediately. Garnish with lemon wedges if desired. (Lemon not included in nutritional info.)

    I added more garlic and used Italian Spices instead of the Cajun seasoning. I only broiled the shrimp for 2 minutes on one side, turned it over and 1 minute on the other side. It was great. I'm adding this to my "Keeper" list! - 1/14/10

    FYI... Shrimp do not take 10 min to broil. If you broil it that long you will have Parmesan rubber balls. - 5/13/13

    Excellent addition to my shrimp dinner rotation. My husband and son loved this and both said it's a keeper! I didn't broil the full 10 minutes, that would have overcooked them. - 8/3/16

    Yum! I used the ingredients that were listed and will try them with Italian seasoning next time. I added the shrimp to a very large mixed greens salad. Broiled the shrimp 3 minutes on one side, flipped them and broiled the other side for 3 minutes. The shrimp were cooked through and juicy. - 5/3/20
