  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup Progresso™ plain panko crispy bread crumbs
  • 12 uncooked jumbo shrimp (3/4 lb), thawed if frozen, peeled (with tails left on), deveined
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • Chopped fresh chives, if desired
  • Tartar sauce or marinara sauce, if desired


  1. In shallow dish, stir together flour, salt and red pepper. In another shallow dish, place eggs. In another shallow dish, place bread crumbs.
  2. Pat shrimp dry with paper towels. Coat shrimp with flour mixture. Dip into eggs; coat well with crumb mixture.
  3. In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add shrimp in a single layer; immediately reduce heat to medium. Cook 3 to 6 minutes, turning once, until shrimp are pink and coating turns golden brown. Serve with remaining ingredients.

  • Most fresh shrimp at grocery stores have been frozen and thawed already, so buying frozen shrimp is often a better choice.
