Lemon Garlic Shrimp


This Lemon Garlic Shrimp is a great appetizer to any meal or served as a light snack with some salsa. The crispy Panko breadcrumb coating added more flavor and texture to every bite of the tasty fresh shrimps. Just sprinkle some salt and squeeze some lemon juice onto the shrimps before serving. Yummy.

Lemon Garlic Shrimp

Ingredients

1 lb (454 g) Peeled White Shrimps
1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour

2 Large Eggs, Lightly Beaten

1 Cup Japanese (Panko) Breadcrumbs
Zest of 1 Lemon

1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Chili Flakes
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Sea Salt
Lemon Wedges

4 Tbsp Vegetable Oil



Method

In a medium bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, lemon zest, onion powder, garlic powder, chili flakes, and some freshly ground black pepper.

Preheat the oven to 425˚F.

Pour the oil onto a large baking tray, and place in the oven for about 5 to 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, toss the shrimps into the flour and shake off the excess flour. Then dip the shrimp in the beaten eggs, and then into the breadcrumbs mixture, making sure to coat shrimp well.

Remove the baking tray from the oven and arrange the shrimps in a single layer and bake for about 8 to 9 minutes turn the shrimps over and bake for another 4 to 5 minutes until golden and crispy. Remove from the oven, and sprinkle some salt on the shrimps and serve with some lemon wedges.

  1. This looks like a great way to make whole prawns go a little bit further. Do you peel prawns or buy them peeled? I always feel like unpeeled prawns are better quality - fresher and plumper but I get frustrated with the work involved.

  3. Do you really need to bake the shrimp that long?
