Make sure to preheat oven to 475 F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Pour the egg whites and whisk lightly. You will need two more bowls: one with flour and another with a mixture of panko crumbs, Parmesan cheese and condiments. This will serve as your “dipping station”. Roll shrimp in flour, shake the excess, then dip in egg whites and finally, in breadcrumbs. Carefully place every piece of shrimp on the baking sheet. Bake for 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve with your favorite cocktail sauce or keep it healthy with a light garlic sauce.
