Happy Hump Day Recipes

  I am on a mission to cook, edit, and consume low calorie recipes at least two to three times a week. 

Oven Fried Shrimp


1 pound raw shrimp (75-100 count)
            I  butterfly(ed) my shrimp after cleaning them.
½ cup panko crumbs
I ran out of panko crumbs with 4 shrimp to go, I suggest you add an additional ¼ cup of crumbs
½ cup regular breadcrumbs

Seafood was a treat in my house. My birthday dinner always consisted of fried shrimp and mash potatoes. We had fried fish every Friday, and when we all started gaining too much weight we had broiled fish on Fridays. I enjoy seafood more then I enjoy meat, which is pretty obvious since I am a pescetarianism, a vegeterina that doesn’t eat meat, but does consume fish. I love fried shrimp, as I mentioned earlier, they are my favorite, but on my current diet I can not eat deep fried shrimp like I used to. I oven fried chicken, for friends, on a regular basis so I had the bright idea of oven frying shrimp. These babys came out so tender, juicey, flavorful, and delicious. If you are a seafood lover I’m pretty sure you will enjoy this recepie.
