This can be VERY spicy! 

			 Spicy Broiled Shrimp
			  Served over Pasta
1  lb medium size Shrimp (I used peeled, some may preferred unpeeled)
3  T  butter
3  T  olive oil (best quality you have)
3     cloves garlic, minced (more if preferred :)
1/2t  ground white pepper
1/2t  red pepper flakes
1/4t  cayanne pepper
1/4t  dried oregano (or 1/2 t fresh minced)
1/2   lemon - juice of 
1/2C  parmesean cheese
5 T   italian bread crumbs (or bread crumbs with a little salt, pepper,
		            oregano and basil added).
1/4C  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
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.
