Lemon-Garlic Shrimp

I've been meaning to post this recipe for a while, it is another favorite of mine and SO easy to make, and of course delicious and healthy! I will often buy the 2 lb bag of frozen, peeled shrimp from Costco, they are so easy and still taste great. (they can thaw pretty quickly under cold water too if you forget to put them in the fridge the night before)

Cooking Spray
1 1/2 lbs med. shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 c. dry breadcrumbs
3 T finely chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp grated lemon zest
1/4 tsp salt
3 large garlic cloves, minced
2 T fresh lemon juice
4 tsp olive oil

1. Preheat oven to 400
2. Coat 9x13 in pan with cooking spray. Spread shrimp evenly in the pan.
3. combine breadcrumbs and next 4 ingredients in a bowl; stir in lemon juice and oil. Sprinkle breadcrumb mixture over shrimp. Place dishes on a baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes or until shrimp are done and breadcumbs are lightly browned. Yield: 4 servings.

So...we don't eat shrimp...but it sounds so good. Do you think this mixture would be good with chicken? Or fish?
