"I've probably been making this recipe since I got it from my Mom in about 1985. I have no idea where she got the recipe from. I've been changing it over the years, and now I call it my own. When we started dating back in 1997, my husband would every now and then order Shrimp Scampi at a restaurant, and always regret it afterwards, saying none of them competed with mine. You can vary the amounts of some of the ingredients, like the cayenne and garlic to suit your taste. That's what I've done here because we like spicy and garlic-y...Yum!"

  1. Place raw shrimp into a saucepan and cover with water, filling to about 2" over the shrimp. Cover the pan and over high heat, cook the shrimp until pink. They will be done when there is foam in the pot and it's just about at a boil. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a 2 quart casserole dish, combine butter, wine, lemon juice, parsley, cayenne and garlic.
  3. Pop it into the oven and preheat to 350°F. Once the oven preheats, the butter should be melted.
  4. Remove it from the oven and add the shrimp, gently tossing to coat.
  5. Sprinkle the bread crumbs over the shrimp and return it to the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Serve over angel hair pasta, or any pasta of your choosing.
