Ingredients

  • 16 oz of fresh or frozen shrimp
  • 2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup of Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  • We like to use fresh shrimp when ever possible. So if you go with fresh shrimp with the shell still on it, you'll need to peel it first. Remove the entire shell.
  • If you use frozen shrimp, thaw it first by running the shrimp under cool water until completely thawed.
  • Preheat oven to 400 and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • In a bowl, mix Panko breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, Parmesan cheese and Cajun seasoning.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the 1 egg and the 1 egg white.
  • Dip each shrimp in the egg first and then coat in the breadcrumb mixture.
  • Place shrimp on greased baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes (for large shrimp).

Notes

Follow these basic guidelines when cooking shrimp. Cook small shrimp for 6 to 8 minutes, medium shrimp for 10 to 12 minutes, and large or jumbo shrimp for about 15.
I do not turn the shrimp while cooking so the breadcrumbs stay in place.
