Shrimp has been making a weekly – or even bi-weekly – appearance in my kitchen lately. I don’t know what’s gotten into me but I have shrimp on the brain and I can’t seem to get enough of it right now. It’s a good thing my husband loves shrimp as much as I do to help me taste-test and devour all of this seafood goodness.

This recipe is so simple but packs SO much flavor. First, you marinate the shrimp for just 15 minutes in a mixture of eggs, soy sauce, and rice vinegar. Then dip the shrimp in panko breadcrumbs to coat and arrange them on a large baking sheet in a single layer so that they aren’t overlapping.

Bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes until perfectly golden brown and crispy on the outside.

While the shrimp is baking, whip up that sweet and tangy honey lime and garlic sauce.

Just bring it all to a boil, stir in a little cornstarch slurry, and voila – you’re done. Combine the sauce and the shrimp and top it off with a little lime zest and chopped fresh cilantro and you’ve got one heck of a tasty shrimp dish on the table.

      Since I look at recipes usually on my phone, I just pin using my share option. You can also create a pin on pinterest with the link. It is very easy, it says create a pin on the page.

My husband and I don’t even eat seafood but I am going to attempt this tomorrow because it looks delicious!!

    I think you’d love it – even if you don’t care for seafood! You could always make it with chicken instead!

      Just coming across your recipes have read your bio viewing your recipes and loving them…I’m recovering from surgery but I will send my daughter shopping for the baked crispy honey lime shrimp…thanks Tiffany from charlotte Nc…..

Looks great. Nutritional info??

Baked crunchy shrimp? Sign me up! Beautiful beautiful photos as always.

    Thank you so much!!!

I would appreciate a print and and an email option pleas

Looks like this could be a nice size appetizer type meal!-Laurel Bledsoe

What a great recipe!! Just asking a couple of questions – is it necessary to spray the cooking spray on the shrimp? And do the shrimp need to be turned over halfway through? Thanks! Can’t wait to make this!!

Im going to try this, but put coconut flakes in with the breadcrumbs. Think it will make it more special. Shrimp are called prawns over in the UK. But definitely going to try this recipe out. I 1st tried coconut shrimp in the Rainforest Cafe in downtown Disney Orlando. They were yummalicious!!


Do you use raw ir precooked shrimp?

Looks like a great recipe. What about adding coconut to the panko? Has anyone tried that?

Looks great! Can I make these the night before without the sauce and warm up the next day and serve as an appetizer? I have time to make them in the morning and serve as an appetizer a few hours later. Which would work better.

What would be a great side to pair with the shrimp?

Can I substitute the siracha?

    You could use another hot sauce maybe? I’ve only used sriracha so I can’t say for sure what would be a great substitute. 🙂

Had such high hopes for this recipe because it looked delicious in the pictures, however none of the Panko stuck to the shrimp. By the time I mixed it with the sauce and it was just mush. Pretty good tasting mush, but none the less it didn’t turn out well! 😕

    I had the same issue, as jessica.. the shrimp turned to to MUSH after mixing into sauce, unfortunately. Also, I left shrimp longer than the suggested time of 15 mins and nowhere near a golden color. In the meantime I wanted to be sure not to overcook shrimp! Any ideas tiffany?

Way too much soy could hardly taste the honey or garlic . I used low sodium soy too.

5 stars
Yes, the article I was looking for. Your article gives me another approach on the subject. I hope to read more articles from you.

I was so excited to make this but unfortunately the the sauce was too sweet for my taste and the shrimp seemed to salty, probably from all the soy sauce. DISAPPOINTED in the end result.

Thank you for such a nice post.

Can you use reallime juice instead of a lime. I plan to try this as soon as possible.

    I’m sure that would work fine, just be careful to not add too much!

The sauce was very good. I followed the recipe exactly, but the panko didn’t stick on the shrimp. Frustrating to go through the effort of breading to have it all fall off. I might try again, only fry the shrimp first.

    Sorry to hear about that, Farrel! Not quite sure what went wrong for youR!

Love this recipe, second Time making it. Only negative thing was that i followed the recipe and all the breading Fell off once it was Mixed into the Sauce at the End 🙁 The sauce mixture is really great,just a little salty From the soy Sauce!

    Thanks for your feedback, Celina!

How do you change recipe for cooked frozen shrimp

    Just make it the same way but the shrimp will need to be thawed. It won’t need quite as long to cook! Basically you’re just heating the shrimp since they’re already cooked.

Can’t wait to try
