Baked Garlic-Panko Shrimp
Adapted from Gimme Some Oven
3/4 lb. raw shrimp, peeled and de-veined
3 tsp. garlic, minced
1 1/2 Tbsp. water
kosher salt and pepper
2 Tbsp. melted butter
1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp. dried parsley
1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
2. In a medium mixing bowl, add the shrimp, garlic, and water and toss to combine. Transfer the shrimp mixture to a 1.5 quart baking dish and spread the shrimp out in an even layer. Season with with salt and pepper.
3. 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 over the shrimp.
4. 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. Broil 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.
5. Remove and drizzle the lemon juice evenly over the shrimp. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
*This can easily be doubled and baked in a 9x13-inch dish.
