Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 24 oz jumbo shrimp, 21-25 per lb., peeled and deveined, patted dry
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Avocado oil cooking spray

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the butter in a shallow microwave safe bowl. Melt in in the microwave, in 30-second increments. 
  • In another medium bowl, whisk together the Parmesan, black pepper and garlic powder. Divide the mixture into two separate shallow bowls – this will ensure the Parmesan stays as dry as possible, making it easier to coat the shrimp.
  • Dip each shrimp in the melted butter to coat, then roll in the Parmesan mixture.
  • Arrange the coated shrimp in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle them with paprika and spray with avocado oil.
  • Bake the Parmesan shrimp until cooked through, about 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
