Description

This skinny popcorn shrimp recipe is full of great flavor, easy to make, and “lighter” too!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 3 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp. Old Bay or other Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 egg white, whisked
  • 1 lb. raw medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • cooking spray
  • lemon wedges and chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together Panko, parmesan, old bay, salt and pepper until combined.
  3. Set up your dipping station with bowls of (1) shrimp (2) egg whites and (3) breading. Working one at a time, dip a piece of shrimp in the egg whites until it is covered. Then transfer to the breadcrumb mixture and toss until combined. Gently place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining shrimp, then generously coat all of the shrimp with a layer of cooking spray. (This will help the breading turn golden.)
  4. Bake for 3 minutes, then flip shrimp and bake for another 3 minutes or until cooked through and no longer translucent. Serve warm with garnishes and cocktail or low-fat ranch sauce for dipping.
