If you’re looking for variety in your recipes, this one for Shrimp Parmesan is the perfect one to start with. Made similarly to the classic Italian favorite, Chicken Parmesan, this rendition of the recipe boasts battered and fried shrimp, marinara sauce, and a heaping helping of mozzarella. If you’re eager to try it as soon as possible, check out the ingredients list and directions below.

Ingredients:

  • 12 ounces jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 32-ounce jar marinara
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella
  • Grated Parmesan and chopped parsley, for garnish

Directions:

  1. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  2. Mix the eggs, parmesan, and garlic powder in a small bowl. Dip each shrimp into the batter, coating all sides. Place the shrimp in the skillet and allow the egg and parmesan to form a crust, about 3 minutes. Flip and repeat on the other side.
  3. Remove shrimp from the pan and set aside.
  4. In a cast iron skillet, or any oven safe skillet, add the marinara sauce. Heat over medium until the sauce is heated through. Place the shrimp on top of the marinara sauce, then top each shrimp with one tablespoon of shredded mozzarella.
  5. Turn your broiler on high and place the skillet under the broiler. Broil until the cheese melts and starts to brown, about 3-5 minutes. 
  6. Remove from the broiler and top with grated parmesan and chopped fresh parsley for garnish. Serve with your favorite low carb pasta alternative.
