Shrimp Your Way: Oven, Microwave or Skillet
Shrimp in Crumb Crust
You could omit the onion and celery if you’re tight for time but they do add flavor and a nice texture.
20-ounce package of tail-off, de-veined, cooked shrimp
Juice of one lemon
Small onion, finely chopped
Large rib celery, finely chopped
1 stick butter, melted
1 cup bread crumbs
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Spray a baking pan. Thaw and drain the shrimp. Spread thawed shrimp in an even layer in the pan and drizzle with lemon juice. Sprinkle with chopped vegetables.
Melt butter in a nonstick skillet and stir in bread crumbs and garlic powder. Dot the shrimp evenly with the bread crumb mixture. Serves 4.
Oven method: bake at 400 degrees about 15 minutes or until heated and crusty.
Microwave method: Nuke about 2 minutes or until heated through. The top will be buttery and tasty but will not form a crust.
Skillet method: Melt butter in a skillet and stir in shrimp, onion and celery. Drizzle with lemon juice. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and garlic powder and stir over medium heat until everything is heated through.
