Crispy Breaded Shrimp with Cannellini Beans

  • I got this recipe from a Real Simple email that featured quick meals.  Not only was this meal quick but really healthy about 450 calories per serving- something that my trainer will appreciate!  I didn't have some of the key ingredients, you would think I would learn to make a list BEFORE going to the market!  Even though I was missing some key ingredients it was still delicious.  I will make this again - I would like to add in some spinach to the beans as the recipe requests as well as maybe do a lemon vinaigrette for the top.   Try it the next time you need to get a wonderful dinner on the table within 20 minutes!

Adapted from Real Simple

  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon Parmesan cheese
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 pound peeled and deveined medium shrimp
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 19-ounce can cannellini beans, rinsed

Preheat over to 400 degrees.  Mix together bread crumbs, dried oregano, old bay, parmesan and 3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil.  Add shrimp and toss to combine.  Place shrimp on baking sheet and add the excess bread crumbs to the top of the shrimp.  Bake 10 - 12 minutes.

Meanwhile heat the remaining two Tablespoons of oil and garlic.  Saute about 1 minute careful not to burn.  Add in beans, 1/4 cup water and salt and pepper.  Cook 3 minutes until the beans are cooked thru.

Serve the beans on the plate with the shrimp and extra bread crumbs.   Enjoy!
