Spicy Baked Shrimp
We wanted to add a shrimp dish to our weeknight repertoire, and spicy, crunchy, baked shrimp seemed to be just what we were looking for.
Why This Recipe Works
We developed our Spicy Baked Shrimp recipe as an easy way to make a restaurant favorite at home. Heavily seasoning the shrimp with a spicy paste fired with hot pepper sauce and cayenne pepper adds valuable flavor to the shrimp and serves as a base to which the bread crumbs will stick. Fresh bread crumbs give the coating the best flavor and texture. Baking the shrimp in a very hot oven ensures the shrimp won’t overcook before the coating crisps.
