These panko crusted shrimp are perfectly browned and crispy. Paired with roasted broccoli, they make a simple and tasty weeknight dinner!
Shrimp is a rare treat in our house. I usually buy a frozen bag when it’s on sale and make tacos out of it, like these shrimp and pineapple tacos. But this time around, fresh shrimp was on sale and I decided to try something new. And boy am I glad I did. These panko crusted shrimp are crispy and crunchy! They taste like they came straight from a restaurant kitchen. Trust me, there will be no left overs with this meal!
