Garlicky Baked Shrimp

The World's Easiest Shrimp Dish?
by Victoria Challancin

The motto of the Real Simple's website is:  Life made easier, every day.  And recipes like this one certainly prove that point.  When I saw this recipe, I knew I would make it in my cooking class for Mexican cooks who are learning international cooking.

This dish is so easy and so delicious.  It would be great over angel hair pasta, rice, or even crostini as an hors d'oeuvre.  Five minutes of prep time and up to 18 in the oven...who could ask for anything simpler?  This is one of those terrific recipes that yields tasty results with a minimum of fuss.

Garlicky Baked Shrimp
(Recipe from

Serves 4

            1 pound peeled and deveined medium or large shrimp
            4 cloves garlic, sliced or pressed
            2 tablespoons white wine (I might have added 3 or 4...)
            Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
            1/4 cup softened butter
            1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
            2 tablespoons chopped parsley

Heat oven to 425 degrees F.  In a baking dish, combine the shrimp, garlic, white wine, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper.

In a small bowl, combine the butter, bread crumbs, and parsley.

Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture over the shrimp and bake until the shrimp are opaque throughout, 15 to 18 minutes.  Serve immediately.
