Shrimp Scampi au Gratin


The first time I tried shrimp scampi was when my high school/college friend had me and a few other girls over for dinner one night. This was the group of friends that I would cook my “dinner parties” for during college. Well, the shrimp scampi was amazing, so I requested the recipe and have been making it ever since. My mom and sister love making this dish as well. It is extremely easy, fancy looking, and good. Enjoy!

Place shrimp in baking dish and sprinkle with lemon juice.

Melt butter. Combine with bread crumbs, garlic, parsley, parmesan, oregano, and black pepper.


Spoon mixture over shrimp.

Bake uncovered for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Place under broiler until crumb topping is golden brown, about 5 minutes.

Serve over angel hair pasta.
