  • For best results, use fresh shrimp that have been peeled and deveined.
  • When choosing the white wine or dry Vermouth, select one that you would enjoy drinking.

  • Substitute olive oil for butter - This substitution is a healthier option that will still provide the same flavor and texture to the dish.
  • Substitute almond flour for Panko bread crumbs - This substitution is a gluten-free option that will still provide the same crunchy texture to the dish.

Citrusy Baked Shrimp Replace white wine with freshly squeezed orange juice and add 1 tablespoon of orange zest to the shrimp mixture. Replace the parsley with chopped cilantro and replace the lemon wedges with orange wedges.

Lemon Roasted Asparagus: Roasted asparagus is a classic side dish that pairs perfectly with the garlicky shrimp. The addition of lemon juice and zest adds a bright citrus flavor to the asparagus that complements the shrimp. Roasting the asparagus in the oven at the same time as the shrimp makes for an easy and delicious meal.

Garlic Roasted Potatoes: Roasted potatoes are a great side dish to pair with the garlicky shrimp. The potatoes are roasted in the oven with garlic, olive oil, and herbs for a delicious flavor. The potatoes are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, making them a great addition to the garlicky shrimp. The potatoes also absorb the flavors of the garlic and herbs, making them a delicious and flavorful side dish.


Q: How long should I bake the shrimp for?

A: Bake until the shrimp are pink and opaque, about 11-14 minutes. Do not over bake!

Q: What temperature should I bake the shrimp at?

A: Preheat the oven to 400°F and bake the shrimp for 11-14 minutes. The internal temperature should reach 145°F.

Lovely garlic flavour but we felt there was far to much crumb mixture and was a bit soggy didn't really dry all the way through, maybe less butter is required there and we wouldn't mind adding a little zing to it with chilli but a good quick meal to make if you are not peeling the prawns which took me about 40 minutes for about 750 grams worth. I also cooked them in a smaller container than suggested but they did fit in a single layer but it was deep which may have effected the outcome. Thank you Kerfuffle-Upon-Winkle, made For You Consideration tag game in Food Friends and Fun Forums.
