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!

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


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!

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

    • 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!


    • Is there a way to make it with frozen shrimp? I have some at home. Thanks.

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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,

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

  6. 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!

  7. Simple and colorful too! GREG

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

  9. 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!

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

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. Looks delicious! Just voted for you :)

  14. Yummy! You’ve got my vote!

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

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

  17. 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!

  18. 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!

  19. Just made this dish. Absolutely delish!

  20. 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!

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

  22. 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.

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

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

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

  26. Saw this on Pinterest and so glad I made it tonight! I used tequila and lime and it was fabulous! Every one raved about it! Had it with Israeli couscous and steamed broccoli. Yum! Thank you so much!

  27. 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!

  28. 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!

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

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

  31. 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 :)

  32. Hi Ali! I made this a few weeks ago and I kept meaning to come on here and THANK YOU for such an awesome and light recipe! My boyfriend and I gobbled it up QUICKLY! I wrote a post on my blog about your delicious meal. Feel free to check it out!

  33. My husband and I LOVE this! He requests that I make it a few times a month! Simple to prepare too! Thanks!

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

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

  36. 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.

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

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

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

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

    • 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.

  41. 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?

    • 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.

  42. 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,
      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!

  43. Why won’t this print?

  44. 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

  45. 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 :)

  46. 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.
    ************Be careful not to overcook the shrimp*************

  47. This looks fantastic! I am going to make this next week! Can’t wait!

  48. I love anything shrimp! I think I have all the ingredients to pull this together soon. Thanks for sharing your find :)
