  • When selecting shrimp, look for ones that are firm and have a bright color.
  • Make sure to buy unsalted butter for this recipe.

  • Substitute 2 cups of panko bread crumbs for the 1 cup of bread crumbs - Panko bread crumbs are larger and flakier than traditional bread crumbs, which will give the dish a crunchier texture.
  • Substitute olive oil for the butter - Olive oil is a healthier alternative to butter and will give the dish a slightly different flavor profile.

Vegan Option Substitute melted vegan butter for the butter and use vegan bread crumbs. Omit the shrimp and replace with 2 cups of cubed firm tofu.
