Spicy Broiled Shrimp Served over Pasta

1 lb medium size shrimp
3 T butter
3 T good quality olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced or more
1/2 t ground white pepper
1/2 t red pepper flakes
1/4 t cayanne pepper
1/4 t dried oregano (or 1/2 t fresh minced)
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 C parmesean cheese
5 T italian bread crumbs
1/4 C parsley, minced
salt, to taste
1 lb cooked fettucini or linquini

Melt butter with the olive oil in a saute pan that can be used
under the broiler and that is large enough to hold the shrimp in
a thin layer.

When mixture is hot, add the garlic. Toss about and don't let it
burn. While it cooks, add the white pepper, red pepper flakes,
oregano and cayanne pepper, stir well. When garlic looks cooked
but not brown (3 minutes), add the shrimp. Toss the shrimp about
in the pan, coating with the spiced oil. Add the lemon juice and
keep tossing over the heat. Quickly add the parsley, bread crumbs
and parmesean. Toss to coat completely. The shrimp should now be
bright pink and cooked through.

Place the pan under the broiler until cheese looks melted and the
smell infuses your kitchen (1-2 minutes). Taste and adjust seasoning
if necessary (will probably need a bit of salt).

Serve over the cooked pasta, with additional parmesean sprinkled
over the top.
