Garlicky Breaded Shrimp, A Must Try.

11 Dec

This week has already turned out to be incredibly stressful. Work is crazy as I try and fit everything in before the end of the month, and there is probably a 200 page rant I could easily write about my frustrations with Gold’s Gym at the moment (hello fraud case!). However, I will spare you.

::deep breath:: Tomorrow is my Friday, and for that I am extremely grateful.

 On a happy note, I finally finished a table that I’ve been working on and it turned out even better than I hoped – pics coming soon, and as always it is available for purchase. I put a lot of effort into this piece, and it totally paid off – I can’t wait for you to see it!

Also, I’ve been working on spicing up our dinners. This is an on-going process, and I love to see my recipe book grow and grow. Last night I had the amazing idea of preparing shrimp in a similar way that I prepare breaded chicken – why not, right? I can’t wait to serve it up again, it was a huuuge success!

Garlicky Breaded Shrimp

What You’ll Need:

  • Frozen shrimp (I had about 10 left over)
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 cup bread crumbs (any flavor, mine were plain)
  • salt & pepper

What You’ll Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. In a microwavable dish, melt butter and garlic together
  3. Peel shrimp (I take the tails off, even though they shrink if you do that), and add to the butter and garlic mixture. Let marinate for 1-2 hours.
  4. Mix together the bread crumbs, salt, and pepper (I used about 2 tsp of each). Dip the shrimp in the bread crumb mixture and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  5. Drizzle the shrimp with the leftover butter and garlic mixture. Top with extra breadcrumbs and place in the oven for 18-20 minutes.
  6. Enjoy!
