Baked Stuffed Shrimp Recipe

Baked Stuffed Shrimp                 

Serves: 4 Ingredients:
12 jumbo shrimp shelled and divined
3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 cup coarse bread crumbs from day old Italian Bread
1 garlic clove, crushed through a press
1 tablespoon finely chopped Italian parsley
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
4 sprigs parsley

Split the shrimp along the backs but not all the way through. Spray a baking pan with olive oil cooking spray. Arrange shrimp on the pan.

Heat 2 teaspoons of the olive oil in a large non-stick skillet. Add the bread crumbs and cook, stirring, over medium low heat until the bread is golden. Add 1 tablespoon of the parsley, the garlic and lemon zest; cook, stirring, 1 minute. Remove from heat.

Preheat oven to 450 F. Carefully pack the bread mixture into opening in each shrimp, dividing evenly. Brush or drizzle each shrimp with the remaining oil. Bake until shrimp are cooked through, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with lemon juice before serving.
