Ingredients

  • 1 pound raw shrimp peeled, deveined, tails on
  • 1 4.76 ounce box of Breton Gluten-Free Original with Flax Crackers (roughly 1 and 1/2 cups) (please see note!)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 10-12 6-inch wooden skewers

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Prepare a baking sheet by placing parchment paper in the bottom of it. Set aside.
  • Rinse shrimp, drain and pat dry. Thread 3 to 4 shrimp onto each wooden skewer. Set aside.
  • Crush 1 box of Breton Gluten-Free Original with Flax Crackers. The result will be approximately 1 and 1/2 cups of crushed crackers. Season with garlic powder, salt and black pepper and mix well. Pour into a dredging bowl/plate.
  • In another dredging bowl/plate, thoroughly mix egg whites with melted butter.
  • Put each skewer in the egg white/melted butter mixture and cover on both sides. Then, for each skewer, coat them in the cracker mixture until thoroughly coated. Place each skewer on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.
  • Bake in oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, turn each skewer over and place back in oven to bake another 10 minutes on the opposite side.
  • When done, remove from oven and serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce.

Notes

*With one pound of shrimp, this recipe will make 10 skewers with 3 shrimp on each skewer. If you use the entire 1 and 1/2 cups of crushed crackers, you will have a lot left over! You will have enough cracker crumbs to make 2 pounds of shrimp. If only making 1 pound of shrimp, you can likely cut the cracker crumb ingredients in one-half.
