Crispy Shrimp with Tartar Sauce and Red-Cabbage Slaw

Breaded foods, like this crispy shrimp, don't have to be fried -- baking can yield results that are just as crispy (with less fat), especially when you use flaky panko instead of breadcrumbs.

Crispy Shrimp with Tartar Sauce and Red-Cabbage Slaw

Source: Everyday Food, September Fall 2007


  • 5 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 large eggs
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 pound medium peeled and deveined shrimp, tails on
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 lemons
  • Tartar sauce, for serving
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 large red cabbage (1 1/4 to 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 1/2 medium red onion


  1. In the morning: Prep the breading by brushing a large rimmed baking sheet with 1 tablespoon oil; set aside. In a medium bowl, combine panko and paprika. In another medium bowl, whisk eggs together with salt and pepper.

  2. Bread shrimp: In a medium bowl, combine shrimp and flour; toss well to coat. Working with 3 or 4 shrimp at a time, shake off excess flour, coat with egg, dredge in panko mixture, and transfer
    to prepared baking sheet. Cover and refrigerate.

  3. At dinnertime: Cook shrimp. Preheat oven to 475 degrees. With a pastry brush, gently dab shrimp with 2 tablespoons oil. Bake until golden and crisp, 10 to 12 minutes; season with salt.

  4. Make slaw: While shrimp are baking, squeeze 1 lemon into a medium bowl; whisk in mustard and remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Core and thinly slice cabbage (you should have about 5 cups), and thinly
    slice onion; add to dressing. Season with salt and pepper; toss to coat.

  5. Serve: Cut remaining lemon into wedges. Serve shrimp with cabbage slaw, tartar sauce, and lemon.

    The shrimp was fantastic...for not being deep-fried, it was very crispy, and the breading adhered to it without any problem, even with turning it in the oven. In addition to the paprika I added an equal amount of Old Bay seasoning and half the amount of garlic powder. I didn't even try the slaw...slaw needs a balance of sweet and acidic, this seems way to acidic.

    The slaw is awful. Much to tart and diet-like. Substitute with another salad or vegetable of your choice. The shrimp were GREAT. Will defintely continue to make my shrimp using this method.

    And by "beading" do you mean bedding or breading? ;)
