Our light and satisfying batter-dipped Baked Pub-Style Shrimp is perfect to satisfy your cravings for fried foods without tipping the scale. We can stick to our diets and still enjoy full flavor.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled, with tails left on, deveined and rinsed (see Note)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (see Note)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 cup light beer
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and cayenne pepper. Pour beer into flour mixture and whisk until combined.
  3. Holding the shrimp by the tail, dip them into the batter, completely coating each shrimp. Place shrimp about 4 inches apart on prepared baking sheet. (Use additional baking sheets, if needed.) Batter will puddle around each shrimp.
  4. Bake 12 to 14 minutes, or until coating is golden and bread-like.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Tried it this weekend. Awful recipe. Batter came out like cement.

Can you provide a little more detail please. Why do you think the batter was like cement? I ask due to I would like to try but I don't have anything to waste. Thnak you for sharing.

People, you can use WHATEVER YOU LIKE--scallops, drumettes, zucchini--TAKE A DARN CHANCE!

Could you do this with scallops in place of the shrimp?

which is it self rising or all purpose?????

looks good we will try it thanx


question....on TV he said to use Self rising flour and the recipe on line say's all purpose so which is it????

I've used both and never added the baking powder or salt. If you want to use it, use only with the all purpose since the self rising already has those in it. Hope this helps.

can you use chicken wings and drummetts

This definetly is a different slant on shrimp.....healthier and you can really taste the shrimp over just the batter....but not one of my favorites. I prefer the coconut fried version to this baked ....or just plain broiled without batter is better!!
