- 1 lb uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 (8 ounce) canartichoke hearts in water, drained
- 1⁄2 cup italian seasoned bread crumbs
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon romano cheese, finely shredded
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
- Arrange the shrimp in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Gently squeeze any excess liquid from the artichoke hearts, break the hearts into quarters, and arrange in spaces between the shrimp.
- Sprinkle the bread crumbs and parsley over the shrimp and artichoke hearts; sprinkle lemon juice over the crumbs.
- Melt butter with garlic in a small saucepan over medium-low heat; drizzle the butter mixture over the bread crumbs.
- Sprinkle the top with Romano cheese.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the crumbs and cheese brown lightly and the shrimp turn opaque and orange-pink in color, 10 to 12 minutes.
- Serve hot.
This recipe is really variable - within the same pan. 1 T. of cheese is not much to cover a 9x13" pan! I used 3 times as much, and still only had a sprinkle. When I got a bite with cheese, it was good. When I got a bite without - a bit bland. More herbs would be good too. Nothing wrong here, but needs tweaking up.
This was fantastic! I made this exactly as posted, except I chickened out on the butter and shouldn't have. I only used 1/4 cup of butter, because 1/2 cup seemed like a lot, but it really does need it. The breadcrumbs really absorb the garlic butter and this would have been even better had I trusted the recipe. However, it was still a winner. I used 16/20 size shrimp and served this with some spaghetti with butter and parmesan cheese on the side, as well as Mushroom Florentine (Mushroom Florentine). An outstanding meal!

Yum! I cut this down for one, and it worked perfectly. The breadcrumb/butter combination makes this feel decadent and rich; with the addition of the artichokes, it's perfect for a main dish. I opted not to serve with pasta, since I'm watching my carbs, but this would be a perfect topper for linguine. I had to skip the parsley as it was not on hand, but will use it next time to add some fresh flavor and pretty color to the dish. Thanks for posting a winner!
