There are still a few great ingredients in the kitchen to work with. I had a bag of frozen shrimp and still have some rice and canned beans and salad makins’. I decided to try something new with the shrimp, something not so high calorie. I took a combination of several recipes and came up with this….

  • 1 bag medium frozen shrimp
  • ⅓ c. Italian bread crumbs
  • ¼ c. olive oil
  • ¼ c. fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1 tbls.  garlic powder
  • 1 tbls. chili powder
  • lime zest from one lime
  • lime juice from one lime
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Peel, rinse and dry shrimp and place in bowl. Add all other ingredients to coat shrimp. I guessed on measurements.

Spread shrimp on Pam sprayed baking sheet (one layer). Drizzle more olive oil over shrimp.

Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or so. Do not over cook or shrimp will become rubbery.

Squeeze more lime over cooked shrimp.

I also severed white rice with red beans, a salad with sliced onions, cucumbers and cranberry’s and garlic bread.
