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 lite 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


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.)

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.

    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

    This was amazing! Definitely important to have the oven really hot, so the crumbs will be crispy. My family is looking forward to having this one again. Thanks for sharing! - 5/8/12

  • I appreciate the detail of your recipe. Loved these. I baked in hot oven 450-6 mins, flipped and 3 more. Perfect. Marinated in 1 tsp. smoked garlic oil, garlic and Italian seasoning. Used Panko 3 tabs.with parm. Served over spiralized zucchini with basil,spinach,1/2 lemon. Many variations possible. - 2/21/16

  • Good Recipe. Suggest using grated Parm and not shredded. 475 was a bit high for a gas oven, but they shrimp were good and hubby, who is not on a diet liked them and ate a bunch.
    I served with cocktail sauce to please husband but lemon juice would also be cool - 4/19/15

  • I didn't have much time and don't like much spice, so I just added garlic powder to the dry mixture with salt and pepper. My husband and I liked it very much. I will make this again. - 1/12/14

  • I made this tonight for my family and we all loved it. Although I didn't have the creole spice or the Panko crumbs, I used regular bread crumbs and my husband said he could eat it all night. Now that is the ultimate compliment from him. I will make this again, but double the recipe. - 11/27/13

  • I didn't have panko, so I used crushed pork rinds, which might have masked the parmesan flavor a little (my husband asked if I was sure I added it). Next time I'll add more - and there will be a next time, because we both loved this recipe. So full of flavor and the shrimp was cooked perfectly. - 9/13/13

  • Loved this. Made it in an electric skillet instead of baking, so as not to heat up the kitchen. Used "no additional oil" Absolutely wonderful!! - 8/7/13

  • Delicious and easy! I, too, added a bit more garlic and used Italian Seasoning (did't have the Creole). I think that 8 minutes would probably be better at this high temp. - 10/20/12

  • That's a nice recipe, but it needs some more flavor -- maybe lemon/lime (as suggested) or a little bit of cilantro would do well. - 10/7/12
