Baked Stuffed Jumbo Shrimp

This is a New Year's Eve stuffed shrimp dish
that I have to make at least four times a year.
Try this just once and you'll be hooked for life.
I believe using real butter makes this shine along
with the salty, crispy brown bread crumb toppings.
Serve with a horseradish dipping sauce and lemons.
I just drooled on my keyboard typing out this recipe.

12 colossal or jumbo shrimp
2 cups Italian flavored bread crumbs
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

Defrost shrimp in cold water if frozen.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
In a mixing bowl combine bread crumbs, butter, oil,
minced garlic, white and brown sugars with hot sauce.
Cut shrimp down the back and de-vein if needed.
Open up shrimp and fill with as much stuffing you can.
Place stuffed shrimp stuffed side up into a baking dish.
Bake until shrimp is cooked and stuffing is just browned.
Depending on the moisture content it should take 20 minutes.
