Garlicky Baked Shrimp

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.

    Thanks for this wonderful recipe, Ali!! We made it tonight and used your suggestion of tequila instead of wine and it was fantastic. I can’t wait to try it again with cilantro instead of parsley! This is a new favorite recipe around our home :)

    Made it with tequila, cilantro, lime juice………………dang this is good. I served it with buttered noodles and roasted tomatoes. Another new favorite here also.

  9. Candy — March 2, 2014 @ 2:21 pm (#)

    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

    Here in Chicago we call this shrimp de jhonge

    • Cindy — April 14th, 2014 @ 6:23 pm

      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!

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

  12. Kate — May 27, 2014 @ 10:11 am (#)

    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!

    • Ali — June 1st, 2014 @ 5:53 pm

      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!

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

  14. Steffanie — June 30, 2014 @ 8:40 am (#)

    Looks amazing! What sides would you serve with this?

    • Ali — June 30th, 2014 @ 8:51 am

      A big salad would be great, and maybe some grilled veggies!

  15. Halimo — July 19, 2014 @ 8:30 am (#)

    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 =)

    • Ali — July 19th, 2014 @ 9:50 am

      Sure thing! You can substitute chicken or vegetable stock for the wine.

  16. Leigh — August 28, 2014 @ 6:09 pm (#)

    What I would give for this RIGHT now!!! Looks fantastic!! Gotta try!!! :-)

  17. Pepper — November 15, 2014 @ 1:15 pm (#)

    This has become one of my favorite “quick dinners”! It is so simple and delicious. I always make sure I have a bag of frozen shrimp in the freezer for nights when I just don’t feel like making a big meal. We serve it with rice and baked asparagus, or just with a big salad.

  18. Janet Bradley — February 10, 2015 @ 7:57 am (#)

    Do you serve this as is, or over noodles with a salad?  

    Thanks, Jan

    • Ali — February 10th, 2015 @ 8:27 am

      Either would work! :)

  19. Melissa — June 17, 2015 @ 9:37 am (#)

    Made this dish a few weeks ago to rave reviews from my entire family, including my insanely picky 6 yr. old son.  He actually just requested it again, so it’s what’s for dinner tonight!  Thanks for the delicious and simple recipe!

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — June 17th, 2015 @ 11:57 pm

      Thanks for sharing, Melissa — we’re so happy this was a hit with your family (especially your six year-old!) : )
