One of my favorite parts of Christmas is going to my Nona’s house on Christmas Eve for an extravaganza of fish and seafood. And when I say extravaganza, I mean an 8-foot table full of so much food that there is hardly any room to put your dinner plate.

One of my favorite things to eat is my dad’s famous shrimp with breadcrumbs. It’s so simple and so delicious. Of course, when making it, he always ends up with oil splattered all over his dress shirt. He never learns J

Since dad would probably tell me the recipe is “just cook the shrimp and breadcrumbs together and add lemon”, I thought I would supply you with a real recipe, or at least a play on a recipe I found from the Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives guru, Guy Fieri. 

While I don’t know if they will be as good as dad’s…..they look pretty damn good and I will be trying the recipe!

 
Shrimp With Breadcrumbs

Ingredients:

4 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 tablespoons butter
2 cups breadcrumbs (fresh breadcrumbs are best)
8 large cloves of garlic, finely minced
1 pound uncooked, peeled , deveined shrimp (any size you like)
⅓ cup fresh Italian parsley, chopped
Finely grated zest of 1 large lemon
Juice of lemon

Directions:
1. Heat 4 tbsp olive oil and 2 tbsp butter in a large non stick skillet over medium heat. Add the breadcrumbs and half the minced garlic. Saute until the crumbs are golden and crisp (8-10 minutes). Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
2. Heat the remaining oil and butter in the same skillet over medium high heat and add the shrimps (seasoned with salt and pepper) and the rest of the garlic. Sauté until the shrimp are opaque in the middle (3-4 minutes).
4. Stir in the parsley, all the lemon zest and juice and the breadcrumb mix.
5. Toss and taste for seasonings.
This real recipe actually includes pasta, so you may want to tweak the amount of ingredients. For the full recipe follow the link below.

About Recipe for Attraction
Bad boy Neil Harrison may have a sexy body and an even sexier smile, but there’s no way in hell architect Carson Kelly is falling for the elusive bachelor. For starters, he’s her boss, and getting intimately involved with the infuriating alpha male could be a career-killer. And secondly, he’s battling personal demons in one of the most dangerous ways possible: illegal street racing. After a friend’s tragic death years ago, Carson swore she’d never get involved in that life again.

Neil knows Carson’s keeping secrets and he’s determined to uncover all of them…even if he has to seduce them out of her. But as their antagonistic work relationship ignites a passionate affair, Carson must decide if protecting Neil from his need for speed is the perfect outlet for her own restless desire, or if they’re on a one-way path to destruction.
