Before we get into the step-by-step instructions, let’s take a look at the ingredients you’ll need:


Ingredient Quantity
Shrimp (peeled and deveined) 1 pound (450 grams)
Butter 2 tablespoons
Garlic (minced) 2 cloves
Chicken Broth 1 cup (240 ml)
Heavy Cream 1 cup (240 ml)
Dried Thyme 1 teaspoon

Grated Cheddar Cheese 1 cup (100 grams)
Grated Parmesan Cheese 1/4 cup (25 grams)
Fresh Parsley (chopped for garnish)
Breadcrumbs 1 cup (100 grams)
Melted Butter 2 tablespoons

Now that we have our ingredients ready, let’s proceed with the cooking instructions.




  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Grease a baking dish with butter or a cooking spray to prevent sticking.

Garlic Butter

  1. In a small bowl, combine the melted butter and minced garlic. This will infuse the dish with a delightful garlic flavor.

Shrimp Placement

  1. Arrange the peeled and deveined shrimp meticulously in the prepared baking dish, ensuring an even layer. This will ensure even cooking and a beautiful presentation.

Creamy Concoction

  1. In a separate vessel, whisk together the chicken broth, heavy cream, dried thyme, paprika, and add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Pour this luscious blend over the arranged shrimp, ensuring it’s evenly distributed.

Cheesy Layer

  1. Evenly sprinkle the cheddar and Parmesan cheeses over the shrimp and cream mixture. The cheese will melt and create a rich, creamy texture.

Breadcrumb Topping

  1. In a small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs and melted butter until well mixed.
  2. Evenly distribute this breadcrumb mixture atop the casserole.

Bake to Perfection

  1. Place the casserole into the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until it achieves a golden brown top and a bubbly sauce beneath.
  2. Allow the casserole a few moments to cool post-baking.


  1. Adorn your Baked Shrimp Casserole with freshly chopped parsley for garnish.
  2. Serve it piping hot as a stellar main dish. This dish pairs wonderfully with rice, pasta, or a refreshing side salad.
