Here’s a fabulous alternative to battered and deep-fried shrimp. Coating the shrimp with bread or rice crumbs, spritzing with cooking spray and then baking give this appetizer a wonderful crunch without all the saturated fat and calories of deep-frying.

1-1/2 cups panko (Japanese) bread crumbs or rice crumbs
2 egg whites
1 tablespoon fat-free milk or milk alternative
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour or all-purpose GF flour
3 teaspoons seafood seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
30 uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined
Olive oil for spritzing
1. Place bread crumbs in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, combine egg whites and milk. In a third shallow bowl, combine flour, seafood seasoning, salt and pepper. Dip shrimp in the flour mixture, egg mixture, then bread crumbs.
2. Place shrimp on an oiled baking sheet coated; spritz shrimp with olive oil. Bake at 400° for 8-12 minutes or until shrimp turn pink and coating is golden brown, turning once.
