|Baked Shrimp Scampi Ingredients|
- 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup minced onion (recipe calls for shallots)
- 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
- 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 extra large egg yolk
- 2/3 cup panko
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Peel, devein, and butterfly the shrimp, leaving the tail on. If you can, buy your shrimp already prepared this way and you'll cut a good deal of time out of the preparation for this dish. Place the shrimp in a bowl and toss with a marinade of the olive oil, wine, 2 teaspoons of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper. Set aside.
|Toss Shrimp with The Marinade And Set Aside|
Make the bread crumb mixture by mixing the softened butter, onion, lemon zest, lemon juice, parsley and rosemary, red pepper, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper and egg yolk with the panko until combined.
|Make The Panko Mixture|
Starting with the outside edge of your baking dish, arrange the shrimp, standing side by side, with the cut side down and the tails sticking up. Pour the marinade over the shrimp. Spread the panko mixture over the bodies of the shrimp, distributing the mixture evenly.
