SRC Reveal: Baked Garlic Shrimp Over Pasta

It's time for Group B's December 2015 Secret Recipe Club reveal. I can't believe that another year has flown by. This month I was assigned to Well Dined which is written by Sarah.

Sarah's blog started when she and her husband, Jasper, began to record their thoughts on places at which they ate. So, it all began with restaurant reviews. After working at Williams Sonoma (lucky gal!) as a demonstrator, she started posting recipes in addition to the review. And I am so glad she did! She has a ton of recipes. A ton. And I love that she organized them by seasonal produce. Well, she has things indexed and cross-indexed, so you can find recipes how ever you want to search. Me? I search by season.

Given that we're in throes of late Fall, I gravitated towards things such as Sweet Potato Gratin that she served for Christmas a couple of years ago; Salt Roasted Beets with Goat Cheese; and Apple Galette with Salted Bourbon Caramel. Her Miso Tahini Soup looks like a wonderful bowl of comfort on a cold, rainy day. And I can't wait to try her Lentil Salad with Walnut and Herbs. But, in the end, I decided on her Baked Garlic Shrimp because I had some shrimp that I needed to cook. This was a delicious, simple dinner on a crazy, hectic day. Perfect!

Baked Garlic Shrimp Over Pasta
slightly adapted from Sarah's Baked Garlic Shrimp
  • 1 lb shrimp
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 T white wine
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 C butter, softened
  • 1/4 C bread crumbs
  • 2 T fresh parsley


Heat oven to 425 degrees F. In a baking dish, combine the shrimp, garlic, white wine, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper. In a small bowl, combine the butter, bread crumbs, and parsley. Sprinkle bread crumb mixture over the shrimp and bake until the shrimp are opaque, approximately 15 to 18 minutes.

Serve on top of pasta with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.
