Garlicky Baked Shrimp

March 20, 2010 by Ali

This past Friday, I stumbled upon two wonderful finds.

First, I had the pleasure of meeting a delightful new mechanic named Don. I have been searching for a trustworthy new mechanic for awhile, and I think he may finally be “the one”. His office felt like it was pulled straight out of the 20s (when it was probably built), and good ol’ Don is like a Fitzgerald character himself. He has an opinion about just about everything, he’s been in the neighborhood for decades, he’s a die-hard Fox News addict, he loves to give all of his clients dating and relationship advice (solicited or usually not), and he could rival Click and Clack with his storytelling and laughter. BUT, he’s a fantastic mechanic and has worked miracles on my friends’ Hondas in the past. So I think he may be a keeper. :)

Unfortunately the only magazines he had in his office were about cars and his favorite GOP candidates. But thankfully I had stuck the latest issue of Real Simple in my trunk. So I pulled it out while I waited, and then stumbled upon my second wonderful discover of the day — baked shrimp! Um…YUM!

I have always sauteed or grilled shrimp before, so the idea of making them in a casserole was a new but welcome idea. Since the ingredient list seemed easy, and I’m always up for a crunchy Panko breading, I decided to give it a try this weekend. Sure enough, it was absolutely delicious!

Somehow I realized that I accidentally bought the package of teeny tiny frozen shrimp, so I admit it didn’t quite look like the magazine photo. (I would definitely recommend using large or extra-large shrimp!) But shrimp is still shrimp, and the flavors came together perfectly! I especially loved the extra crunch of the Panko and squeeze of lemon, and true to its name, the dish is wonderfully garlicky. But best of all, it only took about 10 minutes to prep. Definitely an easy dish to wow your family or friends in a time crunch!

Yay for fun Friday discoveries! I have a feeling I will be revisiting both again very soon.

Garlicky Baked Shrimp

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 18 minutes

Total Time: 23 minutes

Yield: 2-4 servings


  • 1 lb. raw shrimp, deveined and peeled
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 Tbsp. white wine
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp.) melted butter
  • 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh Italian-leaf parsley, chopped
  • half of a lemon (optional)


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

In a bowl, combine the shrimp, garlic, and white wine. Stir to combine, then pour into a baking dish. Spread out evenly, and then season with salt and pepper.

In another bowl, use a fork to mix melted butter, Panko, and parsley until well combined. With your fingers, sprinkle the mixture evenly in the baking dish over the shrimp.

Transfer dish to oven and bake until the shrimp are pink and opaque, about 11-14 minutes.

  2. Hi Ali!

    I really wanna try this recipe but was wondering if I could use something else to substitute for the white wine. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated =)

    - Steffanie

  4. I have made this twice this week and CANNOT GET IT INTO MY FACE FAST ENOUGH. wow. DELISH. thank you!!!!

    - Heather

  5. Has anyone tried a variation of this with precooked shrimp? I’d love to use what I already have. I know it wouldn’t taste the same, but if anyone has suggestions on how I could do this I would very much appreciate it!

    - Kate

    • Hi Kate!

      I’m all for using what you have. I would not double-bake the shrimp (if they have already been cooked). You could cook up the topping in a saute pan on the stove, and then add the shrimp at the last second to warm them, and serve the dish that way. If you double-bake the shrimp, I’m afraid they would be too tough and overcooked. Good luck!

  6. Made this tonight. Received compliments and my fiancé was very impressed. Can’t wait to make this again!!!!

    - Dana

    • I knew it! Shrimp de Jhonge. Remember this dish from when my mom used to pick it up frozen from Marshall Fields. It’s a totally vivid memory even though I was less than 10 YO then, and more than 5x that now! It was a favorite then and now! Make this recipe at least every two weeks. Thanks!

      - Cindy

  8. Saw this on my FB page. Looks wonderful; I am from Florida, I live in PA now. I am so used to living on the Gulf Coast. I miss my fresh seafood. This caught my eye and I will try it very soon. Fresh seafood is is rather costly here, I may have to wait till summer in hopes the cost will go down a bit!! <3

  17. Aloha Ali, This is Cheryle from Honolulu Hawaii, I just wanted to thank you for your delicious recipe which I tried and made last night. I also wanted to tell you that I added parmesan cheese on the top before baking it, and I like how the crust got crispy from the panko so I put it under the broiler to get it a little more crunchy My husband and I “Loved it” He thought I was the best cook ever…lol.. Thank you once again for sharing and keep those awesome recipe’s coming………Mahalo & Aloha

  18. Why won’t this print?

    - Betsy Hartmann

  19. What would you have it with? I am seafood ignorant, lol But I am trying to incorporate it into my diet. My parents weren’t fish eaters, so as a result, I wasn’t either. So, I have been trying to find good seafood recipes that are simple to make. I’m not looking for lobster or crab recipes, but basic budget conscience recipes that are simple.

    - Gina Pocan

    • Gina,
      With shrimp dishes (like this) I usually prepare simple brown rice or couscous to go with, and then a veggie (we live on our sailboat so we usually have a lot of zucchinni or green beans, as they are easy to make up). I like to sautee slicked zucchinni in olive oil on the stove top and then sprinkle with McCormick’s garlic herb seasoning. With seafood and some rice/couscous, easy and good. Hope this helps!

  20. I have Hung Huynh’s recipe. He dad crumbs, but adds 1/4 chopped tomatoes. Not sure which white wine to use – dry or Moscato?

    - CELE

    • Use the dry white wine or a basic like chardonnay or pinot grigio – the moscato will put a lot of sugar into the dish. Also, if you don’t have wine, you can use chicken broth instead.

      - Alison

  21. Want to try this. Should it be dry white wine, or
    couold I use Moscato?

    - CELE

    • Use the dry white wine or a basic like chardonnay or pinot grigio – the moscato will put a lot of sugar into the dish. Also, if you don’t have wine, you can use chicken broth instead.

      - Alison

  22. cannot print can you send it to my email listed above and would like to be put on you email list

    - Karen

  23. Hi there…..Im gluten free. What do you recommend I substitute for the panko breadcrumbs? (new to this whole GF stuff!) thanks! :)

    - Jillian Oakes

  24. Looks yummy! If I don’t want to use wine (or another alcohol), what’s a decent substitute? Chicken broth maybe?

    - Sharlie

  25. Great recipe. I wasn’t too thrilled that when I hit the print button that I wasted 4 sheets of paper printing up ads and misc. Not to mention my ink. Don’t hit print, copy and paste the recipe or your going to waste 5 sheets of paper before your recipe even prints.

    - Loren Wallach Boyce

  26. the shrimp i have is frozen precooked. how should i adjust the recipe. thanks, donna

    - donna bailey

  27. I had some panko that was already seasoned I found down spice aisle. And used Chardonanny also.

  30. This has become my husbands FAVORITE meal…and mine too! Every time he sees white wine in the fridge he asks for this meal. We serve it over angel hair pasta and its perfect :)

    - Marissa

  31. My boys are away at college and I was wondering if I could make this dish and freeze it for them?

    - Shannon

  32. Just made this for dinner tonight and it was superb! I will be making this many times. Thanks so much for the recipe.

    - Charlotte

  33. Just wanted to let you know I tried this tonight. I served it over angel hair with a side of steamed zucchini. I used regular bread crumbs and added a bit more butter but it was pretty good. I would like to do this with a cream sauce perhaps! Thanks for putting it up!

    - CherylO

  34. I made the tequila cilantro version of this tonight and it was AMAZING! I served it with cilantro lime rice! We loved it! Thanks for the recipe!

    - Megan

    - Anna S.

  36. This dish was awesome! We loved the garlic, served with salad and saffron rice! It was delish and will serve again very soon!

  37. Delish….used crushed up ritz crackers instead…doubled the topping! Delish!

    - kim

  38. What kind of white wine did you use? I’m going to make this next week. Thanks!

    - Ashley

  39. Really easy to make and delicious. Substituted the shrimp for chicken and with a little more cooking (35 minutes) it turned out perfectly, served over pasta.

    - Jacob R.

  40. This is wonderful! I made it with the cilantro and lime, YUM!!!
    I will be making this again, the family loved it.

    - Carrie

  41. I’ve been playing with this. I made it once according to the recipe and everyone loved it. The next time I made it I substituted the butter for some olive oil and they loved it even more! Next I’m going to mix some fresh asparagus in with the shrimp and see how that comes out!

    - Amanda

  42. Awesome!

    - Jlh

  43. Just made this dish. Absolutely delish!

    - Tashy Ross

  44. I have a nearly identical recipe that I use as a freezer meal. I put this together raw, then freeze. When we’re ready to eat it I simply thaw and bake as noted. My husband and kids love it and I love a good freezer meal!

    - Tina

  45. Wow~ Made this tonight and it’s fabulous! There’s two little items missing from the directions! First, be sure to use a baking dish where most of the shrimp is in just one layer…the panko crisps up better that way! Second…add the lemon to the wine and garlic…and ohhh…can you say yum! My teenage boys were in “scrimp” heaven! Thanks for the great addition to my favorite easy meals!

    - Coll

  46. I would suggest roasting some asparagus in the oven while this shirmp cooks.

    - Valerie Quinn

  47. Made this last night. Quick. Easy. Delicious. A definite make again recipe.

  50. I have read over a few of your entries and I was itching to know if you were interesting in swapping website links? I am often searching to swap links with blogs on similar content! I look forward to hearing back from you soon.

    - Avery Mcbain

  51. Just tried your recipe, but with tequila, cilantro, and lime as you suggested. It was great! We had a lime based couscous with it and a spicy mixed green salad with feta, blueberries, and tomatoes. Thanks!

    - Miles

  52. Nice pics should put a few more up here!

    - Richard

  53. Mmm! Sounds so easy to make and looks good. Shrimp and garlic, loved them combined. I must try this recipe as soon as I get some Panko available. I might serve it with risotto and white wine. Thanks!

    - Elaine from Cookware Help

  54. That shrimp looks so good!

    - Kevin (Closet Cooking)

  55. Oooh! This looks easy and delish! And I just bought some Panko breadcrumbs at Trader Joes!

    - Kate

  56. Simple and colorful too! GREG

    - sippitysup

  57. This looks like a fun and easy dish. I wish my hubby liked shrimp… I’ll have to try it sometime when he’s not around!

    - Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction

  58. I second the tequila idea, although it would be hard to improve on this dish. It looks amazing and so perfect for spring.

    - Aimee

  59. Hi Ali,

    Congratulations on this great blog.

    I have a publishing idea I’d like to run past you, if you’d be kind enough to provide me with an email address?

    Many thanks in advance,

    - Julia Gaw

  60. Looks great! I actually cut out this recipe from Real Simple too…it’s been waiting patiently (along with my other hundreds of recipes I have to try). Maybe I’ll get on this one sooner rather than later.

    - Amie & Abbey Road

  61. How simple! I definitely need to try this. Maybe over some angle hair pasta or rice!?

    - Kacey

  62. looks delicious, what did you serve it with?

    - TaraTakesTheCake

    • Hey Tara!

      I actually served it with some really simple garlic/chili pepper/olive oil pasta. Will get the recipe for it up soon!! :) But just about anything would work — pasta, a green salad, risotto, you name it!
