Shrimp Fantastic

Recipe Taken From:
Virgina Fare Cookbook

3/4 cup butter, divided
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon tarragon
1/4 cup sherry
1 pound large fresh shrimp, peeled & deveined
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs (or croutons pulsed in a food processor)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt 1/2 cup butter in a large skillet. Add onions, garlic, tarragon, and sherry. Simmer 5 mins. over medium heat.
Melt remaining 1/4 cup butter in same skillet. Add shrimp, cooking over low heat. Season with salt and pepper.
Add bread crumbs when shrimp is almost done. Toss well.
Transfer to a large casserole dish. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake for 10 minutes.

Notes & Tips:
This is very similar to shrimp scampi. I think it would be best served with crusty bread to put the shrimp on. Make sure to generously season with salt if your bread crumbs don't have much. Overall I felt like this was good, but would be even better served like bruchetta. I served this with french bread and a salad.
