If Summer has you jonesing for seafood-shack-style fried fish but you don't feel like hovering over hot oil in the heat, perhaps I can tempt you with this healthier, oven-baked makeover of classic fried shrimp.
Served alongside tartar sauce and a quick and easy red slaw, this finger food evokes the best beachside eats. Better yet, the shrimp can be breaded ahead of time and stored in the fridge, so when you get home from work, you just pop them in the oven. Add it to your week when you read more.
