Garlicky Baked Shrimp

Happy Friday! You made it through the week and now can celebrate with a super easy and fast meal! As you may know by now, we usually have a bag of shrimp in the freezer for quick meals. It is a lean protein, low in calories and cooks extremely quickly. Not to mention we actually had all of the other ingredients in the house already, so this can be a great go-to dish. This recipe is full of flavor and I love the crunch from the crispy panko bread crumbs. Panko is an Asian style bread crumb that is a bit lighter and healthier, but if you don't have them you can always use regular bread crumbs. To make this a complete meal you can put it over some rice or pasta with veggies.
