Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 4 servings
- 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
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.
