Shrimp de Jonghe


2.5 to 3 Lbs. raw, peeled and deveined shrimp.
3 sticks of butter (Shhhhh!!!)
1 head of garlic,  peeled and sliced really thin.
½ tsp. crushed red pepper ( I am guessing,  I eyeballed what looked good to me)
1 cup plain bread crumb.
1 cup parmesan cheese.


Preheat oven to 325
Combine breadcrumbs and cheese in a bowl and put aside.
Melt butter (shhhh!!!) in large saute pan.
Add chopped garlic and crushed red pepper.
Cook on low heat 10-15 minutes.
Sprinkle cheese and breadcrumb mixture over butter a couple handfuls at a time,  mixing and checking consistency.  You dont want it too loose or too thick,  use your best judgement.  I think I used about 1¾ cups.
Immediately add shrimp, and mix for 1 minute.
Pour into casserole and bake for 30 minutes.
