Baked Shrimp with Lemon Garlic Crumbs

Due to the Lenten season and not being a huge fish fan, I am always trying to come up with ways to spruce up shrimp. I also am allergic to handling the raw shrimp, so I buy the shrimp that has already been cooked. That way too, it's not as gross to handle! haha.

Here is what the Watsons are having this evening:

Baked Shrimp with Lemon Garlic Crumbs
1 1/2 lbs large shrimp
2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs (approx 1 slice bread)
3 teaspoons parsley
1 teaspoon fresh lemon rind
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons lemon juice
4 teaspoons butter

  1. With food processor running, drop garlic cloves into top feeder tube and process until finely minced.
  2. Add 1 slice of cubed bread pieces, parsley and lemon rind and process until fine crumbs.
  3. Remove mixture from processor bowl and stir in salt,, lemon juice and melted butter and mix lightly.
  4. Spray four individual gratin dishes with nonstick cooking spray and divide shrimp evenly between the dishes.
  5. Sprinkle bread crumbs over the shrimp and bake at 400° for approximately 15 minutes or until shrimp are done and crumbs are light brown.
I don't have any garlic bulbs on hand, just the already minced garlic, and I have a jar of breadcrumbs, so that is the tweaking I did to the usual recipe. I will either server on top of hot steamed rice or on top of pasta.

I will try and post pictures while I am cooking. But, here is the recipe for now!
