1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined (uncooked)
3 T butter
3 T evoo (extra virgin olive oil)
3 cloves garlic, minced
½ tsp ground white pepper
½ tsp red pepper flakes
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
¼ tsp dried oregano
Juice of 1 lemon
¼ cup parsley, minced
5 T Italian bread crumbs
½ cup parmesan cheese (fresh, grated or shredded)
Salt to taste
1 lb cooked fettucine or linguine

Melt butter with olive oil in a sauté pan. When the mixture is hot, add the garlic, white pepper, red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper and oregano. Stir well.

Once garlic looks cooked (about 3 minutes), add the shrimp.

Toss in pan until well coated with the spiced oil. Add the lemon juice and keep tossing over the heat. Quickly add the parsley, bread crumbs and parmesan cheese.

Toss to coat completely. The shrimp should now be bright pink and cooked through.

Place the pan under the broiler until the cheese looks melted, approximately 1-2 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.

Serve over the cooked pasta, with additional parmesan cheese over the top.
