Garlicky Baked Shrimp Recipe -- one of my favorite easy dinners! It's super quick, calls for just a few simple ingredients, and it's completely delicious. |

Guys, I’ve gotta admit, I’ve been having way too much fun lately digging back into the recipe archives and re-introducing some of my old favorites back here on the homepage.

With 1,200+ recipes here on the blog, there are just too many good ones that get buried!

Especially anything more than 3 or so years old, which in internet years, means they were essentially written on ancient stone tablets.  ;)

Don’t worry, I’ve got three brand-spankin’ new recipes comin’ atcha next week.  But for today, I have one more oldie-but-goodie that I’ve been meaning to re-introduce to you for years.  It originally debuted on the blog 6 years ago, and has been a reader favorite and one of my personal favorites ever since.  Because it’s ridiculously quick and easy to make, it’s made with the best buttery-lemony-and-ultra-garlicky flavors, and it has this way of always impressing a crowd.  (Seriously, everyone thinks it’s so fancy!)

But.  Every time I see its small, out-of-focus, old photo pop up on Pinterest, a tiny part of me cringes and I feel like it’s just begging for a makeover.  So this week, I re-made and re-photographed it, and then promptly re-enjoyed it for the zillionth time.  And now I’m hoping that any of you who weren’t around 6 years ago will get to enjoy it too.

It’s my Garlicky Baked Shrimp!

Seriously, this recipe truly couldn’t be easier.

Just toss a bunch of raw shrimp with some white wine and lots of chopped fresh garlic.

Bake it up for about 7 minutes, then switch over to the broiler and let the Panko get a little extra golden and crispy.

And then in less than 20 minutes total, this pan of garlicky deliciousness will be yours to enjoy.

See?  SO GOOD!

Feel free to fiddle around with the recipe and add some different seasonings if you’d like.  Or if you want to toss some quick-cooking veggies in there with the shrimp (I made this with chopped asparagus the other day!), that can work too.  I typically serve this with a big salad, and some roasted veggies on the side.  But the serving option sky is the limit.  Just make it.  ;)

And enjoy!

Garlicky Baked Shrimp

You will love this crunchy Garlicky Shrimp Bake recipe! Delicious and ready to serve in about 20 minutes! The perfect weekday meal!


  • 1 ½ pounds raw shrimp, peeled and de-veined
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 3 tablespoons white wine
  • Kosher salt and freshly-ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup (4 tablespoons) melted butter
  • ½ cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1-2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh Italian-leaf parsley, chopped


Preheat oven to 425°F.

In a medium mixing bowl, add the shrimp, garlic, and white wine and toss to combine.  Transfer the shrimp mixture to a 9 x 13-inch baking dish, and spread the shrimp out in an even layer.  Season with with salt and pepper.

Rinse out the mixing bowl, then add the melted butter and Panko, and use a fork to stir everything together until it's evenly combined. With your fingers, sprinkle the mixture evenly in the baking dish over the shrimp.

Transfer dish to oven and bake for about 7 minutes, or until the shrimp are just turning pink.  Switch the oven over to the "high" broiler setting.  Then broil the shrimp for 2-3 more minutes or until they are totally pink and cooked through, and the Panko starts to toast and turn slightly golden.

Remove and drizzle the lemon juice evenly over the shrimp, and sprinkle on the parsley.  Serve immediately.

    Sounds delicious! I am going to make this and serve it over linguine – do you think it will be “saucy” enough for a pasta or should I make a lemon butter sauce to pour on top of the shrimp & linguine?

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — May 17th, 2016 @ 10:05 pm

      That sounds lovely Carolyn! We’d recommend making a little lemon butter sauce to pour on top, as this isn’t terribly saucy. We hope you enjoy! :)

    This has seriously been one of my most-cooked recipes from your website! Both my mom and my fiancé request it whenever I’m in KC to visit! I typically serve it with some brown rice or quinoa and fresh green beans on the side :)

    I’m making this tonight with some fresh asparagus that I just got from my CSA so excited.

    There is nothing, and I mean NOTHING, better in life than to watch shrimp cook.

  8. Kandi Koppelman — June 6, 2016 @ 9:51 am (#)

    Your recipe looks amazing. My husband and are carb free eaters, do you know a good substitute for panko?

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — June 15th, 2016 @ 10:51 pm

      Thank you Kandi! And hmmm, you could experiment with crushed almonds — if you try it, let us know!

  9. Cheryl — June 6, 2016 @ 3:00 pm (#)

    What can I substitute for the white wine? 

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — June 15th, 2016 @ 10:00 pm

      Hi Cheryl! You can sub white vinegar or fresh lemon juice diluted with a bit of water. We hope you enjoy!

    This recipe is great…tasty and easy……great for company with rice and salad and also as an appetizer with little fancy toothpicks….looks cute!

  12. Liza — June 14, 2016 @ 11:51 am (#)

    Quick question…what can you substitute for the white wine if you don’t have any on hand?

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — June 14th, 2016 @ 6:02 pm

      Hi Liza! Good question! If you don’t have any white wine, you could use white vinegar, lemon juice diluted with a little water, or a little white grape juice and some white vinegar. We hope that helps and that you enjoy the recipe!

    Oh my gush, I hope they taste as great as they look. Great photos.

    made this for the first time last night and almost died. it was so freaking amazing. we usually use our go-to ina garten recipe for shrimp scampi but this just knocked that one out of the league. the only changes i made were to cut the recipe down by a 1/3 (we only had a 1lb bag of shrimp on hand) and add some crushed red pepper flakes during the salt & pepper step. 

    we served this with greek lemon rice (can’t get enough lemon…) and some roasted broccoli with…you guessed it, a little more lemon. HEAVEN ON A PLATE. thank you for sharing this amazing recipe!!

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — June 22nd, 2016 @ 12:56 pm

      Awww thanks for your sweet words Melissa — we’re so happy you guys loved it so much! :D

  16. Donna Hildebrand — June 22, 2016 @ 5:19 pm (#)

    Made this twice-so very good! But my husband is allergic to shrimp. Is there a fish you would recommend that we could try to substitute for the shrimp?

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — June 22nd, 2016 @ 10:07 pm

      Hi Donna! We think salmon would be delicious! However, it will need longer to bake — probably about 15 minutes or so. We hope you enjoy!

  17. Kimberly — July 1, 2016 @ 1:56 pm (#)

    This was great served with garlic butter rice, family loved it!!!

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — July 2nd, 2016 @ 7:07 am

      Thanks Kimberly — we’re glad it was a hit!

  18. Kathryn — July 10, 2016 @ 3:46 pm (#)

    This looks delicious! How many adults  would this recipe serve? I would like to make it for a dinner party.

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — July 11th, 2016 @ 7:58 am

      Thanks Kathryn! This makes about 4-6 servings. We hope you enjoy!

  19. Linda Briggs — July 14, 2016 @ 2:27 pm (#)

    Made this shrimp dish for an appetizer the other evening.  Wow!!!!  Fantastic. Better than ANY restaurant shrimp scampi I’ve ever had. 

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — July 15th, 2016 @ 10:17 am

      Thank you so much Linda — we’re thrilled that you loved it! :)

  20. Megan — July 19, 2016 @ 6:46 pm (#)

    This looks INCREDIBLE! Making it ASAP, but a quick question first, can I remove the tails? I usually remove the tails when I cook shrimp/prawns but I’m just wondering if there’s s reason you leave them on. THANKS!

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — July 20th, 2016 @ 1:26 pm

      Thanks Megan! Yes, you can remove the tails. We hope you enjoy this! :)

  21. JenEpi — August 5, 2016 @ 2:45 am (#)

    Made this last night and it was super yummy! I added chopped asparagus to the pan and that worked great. Recipe is definately a keeper.

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — August 5th, 2016 @ 9:24 am

      Thanks for sharing Jen — we’re so glad you enjoyed it!

  22. Tiffany — August 6, 2016 @ 2:39 pm (#)

    Quick question, bought everything to make this for dinner and completely forgot Panko. I do have normal breadcrumbs in the pantry. Do you think that will work just fine or should I head back out to the store ?! 
    Thank you!! 

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — August 7th, 2016 @ 6:23 pm

      Hi Tiffany! These will still work with regular breadcrumbs — it’ll be a slightly different taste and texture, but that’s okay. We hope you enjoy!

  23. Kendall — August 13, 2016 @ 2:35 pm (#)

    This looks amazing! I’m going to try this tonight with the thawed shrimp in the fridge. Probably serve with broccoli and noodles. Getting peckish just looking at the photos!

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — August 14th, 2016 @ 4:48 pm

      Thanks Kendall! We hope you enjoyed it!

    Can you use precooked Shrimp?

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — August 20th, 2016 @ 2:10 pm

      Hmmm, that’s a good question. We haven’t tried this with precooked shrimp, so we can’t say for sure. However, we’re wary to recommend that for this recipe, as we’re concerned it might get overcooked. Maybe you could try it and it just wouldn’t need as long to bake?
