READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Charlotte J

My girlfriend laughs at me but I can't stand the smell of fried foods. So this is a way I can fix my shrimp and not have the smell from the deep frier.

Excellent!! Made this for our 4th of July holiday meal...I used more shrimp (about 1/2 lb. more - to feed 4) so I upped the breadcrumb/Parmesan cheese mixture. I tossed a little salt and pepper into the breadcrumb mixture. When this was ready, I decided it needed a little "visual oomph" so I drizzled some melted butter over the shrimp along with minced fresh basil, and put it under the broiler for a minute. Everyone at the table raved. Great recipe, and I will make it again!
