Easy Stuffed Shrimp
1 pound large shrimp, uncooked
3/4 cup Seasoned Breadcrumbs
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 (6-ounce) can minced clams or Crab meat
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Peel and devein the shrimp, leaving tails on. Using a sharp knife, butterfly shrimp by cutting along the inner curve or underbelly about halfway (almost completely through), leaving the tails firmly attached. Press the shrimp down flat like a butterfly.
In a medium bowl, combine the crumbs, butter, clams (including liquid), parsley, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Stuff each of the shrimp with the mixture. Arrange the stuffed shrimp in a large baking dish; pour sherry around the shrimp.
Bake approximately 10 to 15 minutes or until shrimp are opaque in center (cut to test). Remove from oven. To serve, arrange shrimp on a serving platter. Garnish with fresh parsley and lemon wedges. Serve warm.
