I first stumbled upon this gem of a recipe when I was looking for a quick and delicious dinner option that didn’t require standing over the stove for hours. Slow Cooker Garlic Parmesan Roasted Shrimp is perfect for those busy weeknights when you still want to whip up something comforting and flavorful. The slow cooker does all the heavy lifting, blending the rich flavors of garlic and Parmesan beautifully with the succulent shrimp. Not only is this dish a crowd-pleaser, but it’s also incredibly easy to prep, which is a game-changer for anyone juggling a packed schedule.

This shrimp dish pairs wonderfully with a fresh mixed greens salad, some crusty garlic bread, or even a light pasta with olive oil and herbs. If you’re looking to add a bit more substance, consider serving it with a side of steamed vegetables like asparagus or broccoli. A glass of chilled white wine, like a Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, would complement the flavors nicely and elevate your meal!
Slow Cooker Garlic Parmesan Roasted Shrimp
Servings: 4

1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 cup olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup chicken broth or white wine
1. In a small bowl, mix together olive oil, minced garlic, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice, dried oregano, dried parsley, salt, and black pepper until well combined.
2. Place the shrimp in the slow cooker and pour the olive oil mixture over the top, making sure the shrimp are evenly coated.
3. Add the chicken broth or white wine to the slow cooker, distributing it evenly around the shrimp.
4. Cover and cook on low for 1 to 1.5 hours, or until shrimp are pink and opaque.
5. Once done, give the shrimp a good stir to evenly coat them in the sauce before serving.
Variations & Tips
For a bit of a kick, add a pinch of red pepper flakes to the olive oil mixture. You can also swap out the Parmesan cheese for Pecorino Romano if you prefer a slightly sharper flavor. For a different twist, try adding a handful of cherry tomatoes or some baby spinach about 30 minutes before the shrimp are done cooking. Don’t hesitate to get creative with the seasonings – a bit of fresh basil or thyme can also enhance the dish beautifully.
