1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. dried oregano

Kosher salt

large eggs, beaten

Freshly ground black pepper

1 lb. large shrimp
1/2 c. mayonnaise (or sour cream)

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Dash of hot sauce

Freshly chopped parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 450°. Grease a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. In a food processor (or in a resealable bag using a rolling pin), crush pork rinds into fine crumbs. Transfer to a medium shallow bowl and whisk in Parmesan, spices, and herbs. Season mixture with salt and pepper.
  2. Pour beaten eggs into a small shallow bowl. Dredge shrimp in eggs, letting excess drip, then coat in pork rind mixture.
  3. Place breaded shrimp on prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Bake until coating is crispy and shrimp is cooked through 10 to 12 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, make the sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, lemon juice, and hot sauce. Garnish shrimp with parsley and serve.
