Parmesan (Ezekiel Bread) Popcorn Shrimp
Here is my popcorn shrimps recipe with reduced-fat parmesan and whole wheat bread, that you’ll be crazy about. Easy to make, a tasteful, and customizable recipe you should try at home.
PARMESAN POPCORN SHRIMP – YOU KNOW LOVE THE SOUND OF IT! AND WHAT’S MORE – YOUR BODY WILL THANK YOU FOR THIS DELICIOUS, NUTRITIOUS TAKE ON A POPULAR FOOD THAT IS USUALLY COVERED IN GREASE! THIS EASY RECIPE USES TOASTED WHOLE WHEAT OR EZEKIEL BREAD, REDUCED FAT PARMESAN CHEESE AND 1 EGG. I GUARANTEE THIS IS A RECIPE YOUR FAMILY, ESPECIALLY KIDS, WILL ENJOY. BOOM.
You will need the following ingredients for this recipe. Get peeled fresh or frozen raw shrimp. The smaller they are, the better. Also, get whole wheat bread, reduced fat parmesan cheese and one egg.
Make crumbs from the toasted bread and add your choice of seasonings. My perfect combination of seasoning for popcorn shrimps is garlic, sea salt, Mrs. Dash, pepper and parmesan. Sometimes, I love to experiment and add cajun seasonings.
In another bowl, whisk one egg. Dip the shrimps in the egg, then in the crumbs, and arrange them on a baking dish. Bake in the previously preheated oven at 375F for less than 10 minutes.
Instead of baking in the oven, you can also prepare this dish with an air fryer or you can fry shrimps in oil, which I do not recommend if you want to reach your fitness goals.
Serve baked popcorn shrimp immediately and enjoy them while they’re hot and crispy. I love to eat them with a cocktail sauce or veggies. You can add your favorite combination of grilled or fresh vegetables and you’ll have a perfect meal for the whole family.
