These tasty shrimp were a quick way to make a healthy "breaded" shrimp without the extra fat from the deep frier.
- 1 lb large raw shrimp (peeled and deveined tails left intact)
- 1⁄4 cup flour
- 1⁄4 cup egg substitute
- 2 tablespoons skim milk
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
- 1⁄8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- Heat oven to 425.
- Mix egg beater, skim milk, and lemon juice in a small bowl.
- Put flour in a small plate and put breadcrumbs, garlic powder, old bay seasoning, and ceyenne pepper in a different plate.
- Using tails to hold on to dip the shrimp into flour and shake off excess, then dip in egg and then bread crumbs.
- Place shrimp on a greased pan.
- Once all shrimp are breaded, put pan in oven for 5 minutes Then move pan 5" from broiler and broil additional 2 mins or till shrimp are opaque.
This was good very crunchy I used panko crumbs and whole wheat flour, my neighbor gave me some fried shrimp with which I supplemented these because we didnt have enough. I seasoned the shrimp ahead with garlic powder, bay seasoning etc and just added a whole beaten egg to the shrimp then mixed flour with crumbs in a plastic bag and coated ( I did mess up with the directions). Well the verdict was that although my neighbors fried shrimp was very good these were better, less salty, way crunchier and the shrimp taste was prominent. Don't overcook which I almost did because the color was pale. I will keep making these... Oh BTY I cooked directly on a wire rack for the whole 7 minutes so I didn't spray oil, although next time I will spray the prepared product lightly with oil spray before cooking to add a bit of oomph. The only negative is that it was still bland even after I pre-seasoned so don't be afraid to season both the shrimp and the breadcrumbs if they are plain and of course to your taste.
I tried this recipe looking for an alternative to frying shrimp. The shrimp came out pretty good. The coating stayed on which was good. I only had plain bread crumbs, so the spice flavor was lacking. If you use the plain bread crumbs then I suggest you try mixing some extra spices into the dry ingredients. I'll try the recipe again and use the Italian bread crumbs as the recipe calls for.
Did not miss the oil or grease at all.These are crunchy good.I used large shrimp but still needed a bit more bread crumbs.Went by the recipe exactly and love,love the outcome.I am the only one here that eats shrimp so there is enough left for another meal and some to put on my low calorie pizza. Thanks for the recipe,will make again for sure.
