Easy Breaded Shrimp (Baked)

2 Reviews / 5 Average
Just in time for the Super Bowl, I've got an easy and tasty appetizer recipe for you! This Breaded Shrimp doesn't have to be for adults only, though. They turn out so crispy when baked that you won't miss the deep-fried versions anymore.

Easy Breaded Shrimp him a basket.

My kids used to always turn their noses up at shrimp until I made this recipe for them. Who knew that some breading was all it took? 

So in addition to party food, this is a great way to introduce – or once again try – shrimp at your house, if you have any reluctant ones as well.

    I scored some locally raised shrimp – cleaned! – and so I tried out this recipe. I have never made anything with shrimp before. This was delicious!!! Bread ’em and bake ’em and squeeze some lemon on and I ate the whole pound of shrimp myself (so full). This is absolutely getting made again.

      I would not use this with pre-cooked shrimp because shrimp are over-cooked and become tough very easily.

  2. This does look easy and good for the first timers. What would be a good dipping sauce to serve with these?

  3. Just in time for Lent! What would be the best way to freeze these (if there is one)? Make through Step 3 and then freeze or fully cook them and then reheat? That way I could make several batches on Sunday and pop some in the oven Friday night when I get home.

      Hello. We’ve not frozen these. I’m not sure how well the batter would stick if they aren’t fully cooked before freezing.
