"This was pretty good. I spread the butter mixture on the bottom of the pan, then melted the rest of the mixture and poured it on top. The more concentrated mixture helped the shrimp to stand upright. There is a bit of a learning curve, and it takes more than "moments" the first time you make it. But in reality it takes about 15/20 minutes of prep (to butterfly the shrimp and put everything together) then add on the cooking time. "

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Peel, devein, and butterfly the shrimp, leaving the tails on. Place the shrimp in a mixing bowl and toss gently with the olive oil, wine, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper. Allow to sit at room temperature while you make the butter and garlic mixture.

In a small bowl, mash the softened butter with the garlic, shallots, parsley, rosemary, red pepper flakes, lemon zest, lemon juice, egg yolk, panko, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper until combined.

Starting from the outer edge of a 14-inch oval gratin dish, arrange the shrimp in a single layer cut side down with the tails curling up and towards the center of the dish. Pour the remaining marinade over the shrimp. Spread the butter mixture evenly over the shrimp. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until hot and bubbly. If you like the top browned, place under a broiler for 1 minute. Serve with lemon wedges.

Absolutely delicious and easy to make! I tossed it over some angel hair pasta with crescent rolls on the side. Husband and son are typically critical, but loved it!!

Loved it! We plan to add this to our rotation of dishes on a non-frequent basis.

Loved this dish! I did skip the butterflying of the shrimp because I was short on time. If you do this, it takes a little longer to cook, more like 15-17 min.
