Quick Herbed Panko Baked Shrimp With Couscous


Quick Herbed Panko Baked Shrimp With Couscous
Quick Herbed Panko Baked Shrimp with Couscous is a super easy flavorful dinner that takes less then 30 minutes start to finish.
Who doesn't like a quick, healthy, easy dinner?
Tune in tomorrow for a super easy vegetable side my kids love, to round out your 30 minute dinner! 
With 3 kids in basketball and Colt coaching L.J.'s team our days seem to be endlessly busy and an easy
 dinner is essential.
This is the perfect supper to make for early summer meals as we become busier and the days become longer.
This recipe's a spin off of a Ritz Cracker and Shrimp Casserole my friend Beth's Mom Sally would make when we were kids.
It was so good, I still remember having dinner at her house 20 some years later.
I don't have her recipe so I've had to improvise to make something similar to what my taste buds recall.
I usually don't have Ritz on hand so we usually make it using panko bread crumbs in some butter and herbs.
The herb coated panko bread crumbs gives a nice crunchy texture to the shrimp as it bakes.
If you don't like couscous, rice or quinoa make great alternate option for serving or they are amazing plain with a veggie or salad.
