Jumbo Shrimp Parmigiana

2 pounds raw jumbo shrimp (11−15 per pound),peeled and deveined
2 cups flour
3 eggs, beaten
2 cups seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
2 cups basic tomato sauce
1/2 pound shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup grated Romano cheese
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Clean shrimp: pat dry. Dredge shrimp in flour, dip in beaten eggs, and then in seasoned bread crumbs. Shake off excess crumbs. When all the shrimp are breaded, heat oil in a large skillet. Fry shrimp, 4 or 5 at a time until golden brown, (it is not necessary to cook through, since they will bake further).

Remove to a baking pan in a single layer. Top with tomato sauce, mozzarella, Romano cheese and dried oregano. Bake, uncovered, in a preheated 400 degrees F oven for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top with chopped fresh parsley. Serves 8 (allows 3 or 4 shrimp per person).
