Baked Shrimp Scampi

Hello every one!!! How have you been? As you all know Saji has moved to a new place, hence on this occasion we threw a Party to friends here over the weekend. Coming couple of days would post  the recipes of what was cooked on the party night. To start up with my hubby made Shrimp scampi as one the Entrée. I'm not a sea food eater, and hate shrimp to the most, but still wanted to make this for the party, thanks to my hubby who did it. Fortunate mee!!!


2 pounds (12 to 15 per pound) shrimp 
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons white wine
2 teaspoon Salt 
1 teaspoon black pepper
1.5 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
4 teaspoons minced garlic
1/4 cup minced shallots
3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley leaves
1 teaspoon minced fresh coriander leaves
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon grated orange/lemon zest[ We used orange zest, as we ran out of lemons at home]
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 egg yolk
2/3 cup panko [used lemon pepper flavored, got it from Walmart)
Preheat the oven to 425F.
Peel and butterfly the shrimp, leaving the tails on. Place the shrimp in a mixing bowl and toss gently with olive oil, wine, salt and 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, coriander, red pepper flakes, zest, lemon juice, egg yolk, panko until well combined. [Add salt and pepper if you are using plain panko]
Starting from the outer edge of a 14 inch dish, arrange the shrimp in a single layer cut side down with the tails curling up towards the center of the dish. Pour the remaining marinade over the shrimp. Spread the butter mixture evenly over the shrimp. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until hot. Place under the broiler for a minute to see the top browned.
