Panko Parmesan Shrimp Appetizer

What to do with one pound of shrimp and only thirty minutes?  That was my thought the other night when friends called at the last minute to come for dinner and I had one pound of shrimp in the refrigerator.  I quickly said “I’ll bring the appetizer”, the pressure was on.  We were leaving in thirty minutes for their house;  The following dish I put together with what I had on hand.  Let’s just say the dish was ‘licked clean’.  The combination of butter, garlic, shrimp and the crunchy topping was a show-stopper.
