2 cloves garlic minced
1 pound shrimp cleaned and deveined
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs (Pepperidge Farms White Bread recommended for its density)

Grease baking dish with butter. Melt 1/3 cup butter with garlic over low heat for a minute or two just until it turns light golden. Watch carefully, and don’t let it burn. Set aside.
Place half of the bread crumbs on the bottom of baking dish. Sprinkle oregano over the crumbs. Place shrimp on top of crumbs in a single layer. Squeeze juice of lemon over shrimp. Sprinkle remaining half of the breadcrumbs over the shrimp. Pour the garlic butter evenly over the bread crumbs.
Bake at 350 degrees F. for 25 minutes or till bread crumbs are nicely browned.
