Italian Shrimp Oreganata is an easy weeknight meal that cooks in under 12 minutes. Just toss the butterflied shrimp with white wine, salt, and red pepper and place them on a sheet pan topped with the breadcrumb mixture. Bake on a foil-lined sheet pan for about eight minutes and broil for two, so the breadcrumbs get nice and golden. If you make seafood during the Holidays, this dish would make a great addition to you holiday table!

I’m excited to partner with Reynolds Wrap® Foil for this easy sheet pan recipe. I used Reynolds Wrap® Non-Stick Foil, which made cleanup a breeze! The non- stick foil is perfect for lining sheet pans and it keeps your pans from becoming a complete mess. The non-stick side is the dull side, and it keeps food from sticking and makes cleanup easier for you. After a long day, the last thing I want to do is spend extra time scrubbing dishes. Easy dinner, easy cleanup gets you more time with family. And it’s proudly made in the U.S.A. (Louisville, KY).

  1. I made these with Gina’s garlic cheddar biscuits and it was healthier, cheaper Red Lobster up in this house tonight. The only change was I didn’t have regular wine so I used a cooking wine and I’m sure it made no difference because the shrimp were amazing. Made cucumber yogurt dill slices just for a veggie side. 😋

  2. I love this recipe! I’ve made it a few times – it’s one of my husband’s favorites. It is a little time consuming deveining the shrimp but definitely worth it!

  3. Excellent weekend meal that is good enough for company. I added slightly thawed frozen haricots very to the sheet pan this time and it was a great combination.

  4. Excellent recipe. Very easy to follow the foolproof directions. This is an ideal recipe for entertaining.

  5. I have made this recipe many times. It reminds me of a dish my boyfriend (now husband) had at a favorite Italian restaurant in Latham, NY. 40 years later the restaurant is sadly gone, but the memory of their delicious food is recreated in this glorious dish.
    Don’t change a thing and enjoy!

    I’ve made this two Christmases in a row, and each time I’ve wondered why I wait for a special occasion – it’s so simple to make! Paired it with the grits from the Blackened Shrimp recipe. The family raved and I had the leftover shrimp (I always make far more than we need – we’re “leftovers people”) with a caesar salad the next day. Delish!

    I fixed this for super tonight! I didn’t have the dry white wine, but used another wine! Also, I didn’t have the Italian cheese, so I used parmesan ! It turned out really good, and for my husband to compliment me on a dish, it had to be great!!!!!
    So, thanks for the recipe!!!!

  8. Just made this last night, it was delish and easy to make and clean up! My fiancé loved it, will make it again! 

  9. While my butterflied shrimp didn’t look as nice as Gina’s, they got the job done. This was delicious. I cut the recipe in half because it was just for me. Hoping the leftovers are just as good. Thank you!

  10. This recipe sounds great but can lemon be omitted without affecting the taste because I do not care for lemon?

    1. Seriously? Yes, the flavor will be affected… you will no longer taste lemon! And if that makes you happy, leave it out or find a different recipe.

    These are AWESOME! I loved it so much that I sent the recipe to my sister (she’s also on Weight Watchers). She and her hubby both loved it as well. We all felt like we were back up in the Northeast eating at a great Italian restaurant. This tastes way more decadent than it is. This is going in my regular rotation! Thank you, Gina!

  12. This was great! I bought frozen jumbo shrimp, but mine must have been smaller than Gina’s because they only needed 5mins on bake +2mins on broil. Don’t skip the lemon squeeze on top! Served with roasted asparagus and Gina’s easy garlic knots. These would also be great served as an appetizer!

  13. I made this for my family tonight, and they loved it! The flavor is wonderful and we all agreed the oregano is what makes the difference. Thank you 🙂

  14. Been making your tilapia version of this for years, so I knew I had to try this.  I used spray oil, garlic powder, and dried parsley.  I also used lemon zest but didn’t squeeze any lemon juice over it at the end so it would keep its crunch.  It was amazing!

  15. I LOVE this recipe. Easy enough for me to execute but tastes like I put hard work into it – the best kind. Served it with asparagus and called it a day!

  16. Wow this dish is amazing! I served it with your cacio de pepe brussels (which if you haven’t tried you MUST) and it was a great filling dinner!

    Just made this wonderful recipe tonight.  We loved it as it was very easy to prep and took very little cooking time.

  18. This was delicious!  Made it exactly as directly. We all loved it and can’t wait to prepare it again!  

  19. We are trying to add more seafood into our diet these days and this dish was super yummy! Definitely making this again and again! 

  20. Do yourself a favor and make this! I made it with asparagus and it was so good. I was worried it would need a sauce or something but it definitely is great on its own! 

  21. We had this for Christmas Eve dinner and it was a hit with my family.  I took the tails off but did not butterfly the shrimp.  It was delicious and so quick to make.  We’ll definitely make this again.  Thanks for all of your delicious recipes!

  22. Would panko work? I have not been able to find whole wheat breadcrumbs anywhere. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks so much! 

  23. This was quick, easy, and so delicious! Served it with sautéed broccoli rabe..yummy and healthy! 

  24. Made this tonight for Christmas Eve and it was a big hit. Must admit I’m a novice when it comes to shrimp and had never shelled, deveined and butterflied before (and the only colossal I could find at our local grocery store via Instacart didn’t come with it already done) so I watched a few videos and went about my business. I think this would have been even quicker had I not had to do that. Thanks for a great recipe! 

  25. Made this delicious dish last night. And we loved it!
    One thing you should correct within the directions of the recipe.
    The listing of ingredients has 1/4 teaspoon of salt, but within the written directions, step 3, it says 1/2 teaspoon of salt, which is what I did. I tasted the mixed wine and salt, to see how salty it was and was much too salty with that 1/2 teaspoon. I added another 3 Tablespoons of wine, and it was better…Actually created more sauce which we loved when we put the shrimp over rice and grilled zucchini and used the extra sauce. Yum!

    1. This was a great recipe. So easy I really enjoyed it. At fresh market they sell the colossal shrimp already butterflied so this came together in no time. Made it with the broccolini and garlic and that was a great recipe as well. 

  26. I just want to be sure that it’s really two pounds of shrimp. That’s a whole Costco-sized bag (of a smaller size – they didn’t have the really big ones). Thanks! Looking forward to it!

  27. This was a wonderful dish! I made it just as written and it came out perfectly cooked and very tasty! We will definitely be making this again!andra

  28. This sounds great for Christmas eve dinner, and the sides suggestions are a great bonus, I have Brussels sprouts, tomatoes and zucchini – meal planning done! Also just this lunch time I opened a container of yogurt to make a salad dressing and there was your name, is it silly that my first thought was hey – one of my favorite food writers! Gotta go look up the yogurt waffles… ;^)

  29. I made this tonight and it was a hit! I did not have whole wheat bread crumbs so I used Italian style. I also sprayed the shrimp with Pam instead of using olive oil. Was so, so good!
