Baked Shrimp Scampi
Once you try this delicious recipe, you’ll be making all the time. It’s inspired by a recipe by Ina Garten, but I changed up the ingredients a little. It’s easy to make and cooks in only 15 minutes. Serve as an appetizer with crust bread, or as a main dish with linguini. I would serve it with some Portuguese Vinho Verde of course. Enjoy!
2 pounds medium or large shrimp (in the shell)
2 tablespoons Portuguese Vinho Verde or white wine
3 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and black pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 stick of butter (melted)
1 cup panko bread crumbs
4 cloves garlic (minced)
3 tablespoons fresh parsley (minced)
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 lemon (zested and juiced)
Lemon wedges for garnish
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Peel shrimp leaving the tail. Devein and butterfly the shrimp and place in a bowl with the wine, olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper and paprika. Let marinade for about 5-10 minutes.
