Baked Stuffed ShrimpThis simple and easy recipe from 101 Recipes is divine and surprisingly easy to make! The shrimp can be stuffed and refrigerated well in advance and just baked before serving if desired.

Estimated Time Needed:
Est. Preparation: 10 minutes
Est. Cooking: 8 minutes


12 jumbo shrimp shelled and deveined
3 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup coarse bread crumbs from day old bread
1 garlic clove, crushed through a press
1 tablespoon finely chopped italian parsley
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Split the shrimp along the backs but not all the way through. Spray a baking pan with olive oil cooking spray. Arrange the shrimp on the pan.

Heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a large non-stick skillet. Add the bread crumbs and cook, stirring over medium low heat until the bread is golden. Add parsley, garlic and lemon zest; cook, stirring 1 minute. Remove from heat. Preheat oven to 450F. Carefully pack the bread mixture into opening in each shrimp, dividing mixture evenly between all shrimp. Brush or drizzle each shrimp with the remaining oil. Bake until shrimp are cooked through, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with lemon juice before serving.
