Introduction

We love Buffalo wings, but with that deep frying, the skin on and all, lets face it... they're not good for people watching what they're eating. But they're so darned tasty, and I find that tasty spicy food is something I crave regularly. I came across some scrumptious Buffalo shrimp at my favorite place to eat in Vegas -- Planet Hollywood's buffet. Their seafood section is just delectable! These little shrimp poppers, if you will, pack a little punch, feeding my craving for tasty and spicy! But again, they're deep fried, so there goes the healthy way out the window. I decided to try these little shrimp poppers at home, but on a healthier level. No deep frying = a very low fat, low calorie, high protein dish. Although the shrimp ring I used say there is 5 servings per ring, hubby and I split it, making 2 servings, and look at those numbers!!! Still low fat, low cal and high protein. You're gonna love this, as Justin Wilson would say, "I gare-on-teeeeee!"

Ingredients

    Seaquest Cooked Shrimp Ring (50-60 shrimp per ring)
    About 1/4 cup of plain bread crumbs
    About 1/8 cup of 2% milk (I was out of eggs)
    1 tsp Olive Oil
    Approx 5 tsp Franks Original Redhot pepper sauce.

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 400 F
Brush cookie sheet with Olive Oil
Remove tails from pre-cooked shrimp in ring, and soak in milk for a few seconds to moisten, then toss in bread crumbs to coat evenly.
Place breaded shrimp on lightly oiled cookie sheet and place in oven. Bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until browned, flipping shrimp to allow browning on both sides.
Once browned, toss shrimp in a bowl with Frank's hot sauce, and transfer back to cookie sheet and place back in oven for a couple of minutes to allow sauce to soak through.

Number of Servings: 2
