Fast and Easy Broiled Shrimp (Gluten Free)

“This is delicious dipped in cocktail sauce or served over rice pilaf. In a pinch, I've also made this with frozen precooked, quick thawed shrimp: just skip step 11, sprinkle on bread crumbs and broil for 3-4 minutes without flipping (shrimp will not be as tender using this method, but still tasty). Note: Make sure your Worcestershire sauce is gluten free.”
