The best part is that there are leftovers for either lunch or another dinner!

Garlicky Baked Shrimp

Cooking Spray

1-1/4 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
4 teaspoons olive oil

- Preheat oven to 400.
- Coat 4 individual gratin dishes with cooking spray. Divide shrimp among dishes; set aside. (I didn't have individual dishes, so I just used one to hold all the shrimp).
- Combine breadcrumbs and next 4 ingredients; stir in juice and oil. Sprinkle breadcrumb mixture over shrimp. Place dishes on a baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 13 minutes or until the shrimp are done and breadcrumbs are lightly browned. Yield: 4 servings.
