This is adapted from a Southern Living recipe my Mom has. It's what she requested for her birthday dinner. Everyone in attendance raved! We had it with a salad, parsley potatoes, and buttered French bread. Delicious!!!
2 lbs. shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 c olive oil
1/3 c fresh parsley, chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper
1/4 c butter, melted
1/2 c breadcrumbs
1/2 c freshly grated Parmesan
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place shrimp in a 11x7 baking dish. Drizzle oil over top. Stir together parsley, garlic, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper. Sprinkle over shrimp. Cover and bake 15 minutes.
Stir shrimp, then drizzle with melted butter. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and cheese. Bake uncovered until all shrimp are opaque, 5-10 minutes.
Potatoes (any type)
This is very, very easy. I peel my potatoes, my sister does not. Either way, cut potatoes into chunks, and boil until tender. Drain and return to pan. Add butter to potatoes in pan, then sprinkle generously with parsley (fresh if you have it, dried if you don't.) Easy peasy!
