Here’s a fabulous alternative to battered and deep-fried shrimp. Coating the shrimp with panko breadcrumbs, spraying with cooking spray and then baking give this appetizer a wonderful crunch without all the saturated fat and calories of deep-frying. —Cher Schwartz, Ellisville, Missouri

"This shrimp was tasty, but I did it different. I only added 1/2 tsp salt and nothing else. I love cocktail sauce so I wanted a shrimp flavor only."

"These were very yummy! We were a little worried that, because they were "healthy", they wouldn't have enough flavor. Well, we were wrong! For the seafood seasoning I used Old Bay, and then omitted the salt and pepper (there is plenty of both in Old Bay). There was just enough of the Old Bay taste on each shrimp for it to be yummy, but not overpowering. I too cut the recipe in half (for just two of us) and also used Canola Oil cooking spray. I will be making this one again!"

"These were really good and very easy to prepare. Made a half portion for two of us of the Cilantro Dipping Sauce from TOH's Grilled Shrimp w/ Cilantro Dipping Sauce and it was delicious. We had the shrimp for dinner, but they could also be used as an appetizer. Yum, yum!"
