Baked Shrimp

My friend gave me this recipe over 25 years ago. For a couple of decades I had it written on an index card labeled "Katy's Shrimp." In moving up here I lost the index card (I'm sure it will turn up when I least expect it), but of course with a new piece of technology called "the internet," I was able to send her a message requesting the recipe again.... here it is with some adjustments.

2 lbs large shrimp, shelled and deveined, tails on
1/2 cup butter  (I used olive oil)
1/4 cup sherry
1/4 cup minced parsley (I used cilantro)
a splash of lemon juice
3 large cloves garlic, minced (I used more garlic)
a splash of Worcestershire sauce
a splash of hot sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup unseasoned breadcrumbs

Preheat oven to 400 F. Combine all ingredients except shrimp and breadcrumbs in a baking dish. Mix well. Remove 1/4 of this mixture and set aside. Add shrimp to baking dish and mix thoroughly. Combine breadcrumbs with reserved sauce and sprinkle over shrimp. Bake 20 minutes.
