Meet the Sullivans: Garlicy Shrimp

Garlicy Shrimp

I pinned this Garlicy Shrimp recipe on Pinterest recently via Nina from According to Nina. It's originally from Ali at Gimme Some Oven. Ali had the fabulous idea of using tequila and lime in place of the wine and lemon juices! I tried this (couldn't quite taste the tequila, which I don't think I'd really want to taste anyway), and it was just delicious! It is pretty rich, so I would serve it with something bland like mashed potatoes. I will be keeping this recipe in my recipe binder for future use!

1 lb. raw shrimp, deveined and peeled
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. tequilla
salt and pepper
1/4 cup (4 Tbsp.) melted butter
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
2 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

In a bowl, combine the shrimp, garlic, and tequila. Stir to combine, then pour into a baking dish. Spread out evenly, and then season with salt and pepper.

In another bowl, use a fork to mix melted butter, Panko, and cilantro until well combined. With your fingers, sprinkle the mixture evenly in the baking dish over the shrimp.

Transfer dish to oven and bake until the shrimp are pink and opaque, about 15-18 minutes.
