|Broiled Rock Shrimp Lobster Tails
Florida Rock Shrimp
Citrus Garlic Herb Butter *recipe follows
Place the shrimp on a cutting board, belly-side up. Place the tip of the knife at the base of the tail and split the shrimp, leaving the tail attached. Gently spread the meat apart and rinse the vein away.
“Shingle” six shrimp on a foil or parchment-lined cookie sheet. Brush lightly with melted herb butter, sprinkle with Panko breadcrumbs, and place in a 425-degree oven (convection fan on) or under a broiler to brown as quickly as possible – we don’t want to overcook the shrimp.
Remove from oven, slide onto prepared serving plate, and serve with lemon wedges. – Chef Michaelangelo (mick) Rosacci
