This scampi is just as good as you'll find in a restaurant.  The shrimp are flavored with a lemon-garlic marinade and served with slices of crusty garlic bread for mopping up the sauce.

I had some cooked jumbo shrimp that I had to use up and this worked out perfect. I actually marinated them in the frig overnight. I also sprinkled them with some fresh bread crumbs and freshly grated parm before putting in the oven. Instead of the bread, I served over rice pilaf with some fresh tomato chopped in it. Yummy.
