1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/8 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
3 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1/4 cup panko or traditional bread crumbs
In a large heavy skillet, heat the butter and oil over medium heat.
When the butter is bubbling, add the shrimp in a single layer and sauté them for about 2 minutes per side until they are pink and opaque throughout.
Add the garlic, tomatoes, salt and pepper, and cook everything for 2-3 more minutes, until the tomatoes start to soften. Stir in the parsley (or basil) and panko and toss until the shrimp and tomatoes are well coated. Serve immediately.
