Entertaining expert Clinton Kelly shares his easy, go-to holiday appetizer, baked shrimp with buttered bread crumbs, capers + lemon.
"Serve your guests shrimp whenever possible. It's a guaranteed crowd pleaser.
Foodies may have heard of 'shrimp de jonghe,' which is a casserole created by De Jonghe's Hotel and Restaurant in Chicago almost 100 years ago. I've put my own little twist on it, and I tell people that Erica Jong gave me the recipe. Some of my friends have taken to calling it That Feminist Shrimp.
I've never met Erica Jong, and I have no idea if she even eats shrimp. But if you’re reading this, Erica, you're invited over whenever you want!" —Clinton

Preheat the oven to 375°F.
In a bowl, stir together the butter, bread crumbs, parsley, sherry, garlic, capers, salt, and pepper until blended.
Layer the shrimp in a shallow casserole dish and top with the bread crumb mixture. Bake for about 30 minutes, stirring once or twice during cooking, until the shrimp turn pink and the bread crumbs get all toasty looking.
Sprinkle with fresh lemon juice and serve hot.
