Serving Size  : 4                                    Preparation Time : 15 minutes


  • 2 pounds                            SHRIMP, (the larger the better)
  • 1/2 cup                               olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons                       finely chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons                   finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons                   fine fresh bread crumbs
  • 1/8 teaspoon                    crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon                    dried crushed oregano
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Preheat broiler to high.

Split the shrimp down the back side. Rinse and pat dry. Or, peel them but leave the last tail segment intact. Rinse and drain well.

Add the remaining ingredients to the shrimp and toss to coat evenly and well.

Line a baking dish with foil and arrange the shrimp over it.

Place the shrimp under the broiler about three to four inches from the source of heat.  Broil 5 to 6 minutes. It is not necessary to turn the shrimp as they cook. Baste the shrimp and serve hot with curried sweet peppers and rice.

NOTES :  Quick and easy. Don’t over cook. If you double the recipe, go easy on the olive oil. Serve as an appetizer with chunks of French bread to dip in the juices.
