Shrimp Scampi

from 60-Minute Gourmet , page 162

An Austin, Texas fan of my father's often makes this recipe for New Year's Eve much to the delight of his wife. So, we thought to share it with you. The shrimp and marinade can easily be blended several hours in advance (not overnight) and refrigerated until ready to toss under the broiler.

INGREDIENTS

2 pounds shrimp, the larger the better
½ cup olive oil
2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
? teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons fine fresh bread crumbs
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

PREPARATION

1. Preheat the broiler to high.

2. Split the shrimp down the back side. Rinse and pat dry. Or peel them but leave the last tail segment intact. Rise and drain well. Remove the dark vein, if necessary.

3. Add the remaining ingredients to the shrimp and toss to coat evenly and well.

4. Line a baking dish with foil and arrange the shrimp over it.

5. Place the shrimp under the broiler about three to four inches from the source of heat. Broil 5 to 6 minutes until the shrimp have lost their raw, greyish-white look and turn bright red on the exterior. It is not necessary to turn the shrimp as they cook. Baste the shrimp and serve hot with Curried Sweet Red Pepper Strips and Baked Rice.
