30:40 -- Meatless Friday: Shrimp-tastic!

Shrimp Scampi reminds me of Christmas. My mom would make it every year to go along with prime rib, manicotti, cheesy mashed potatoes and whatever requisite vegetable we had. It's quite possibly my favorite shrimp dish.
I don't have the actual measurement breakdowns for it but this is a recipe you'll tailor for your own tastes. I say don't skimp on the garlic.

In a shallow baking pan, melt a bunch of butter and a little bit of olive oil. Add some crushed garlic, a dash of lemon juice, some parsley and the peeled & de-veined shrimp. Top with some breadcrumbs and a little bit of parmesan cheese. Bake until the shrimp are done and the butter is making that beautiful sizzling noise. Serve with bread so you can dip it in the buttery garlicky goodness.
