Preheat the oven to 425°F.
Devein and butterfly the shrimp, leaving the tails on.
In a medium bowl, mix the garlic, shallots, lemon juice, lemon zest, parsley, olive oil, wine, butter, egg yolk, breadcrumbs, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper until combined.
Carefully press the mixture into the cut side of each shrimp, a teaspoon at a time. They should be stuffed well, but you will have some left over.
Arrange the shrimp in a single layer in a baking pan. Spread the remaining breadcrumb mixture over the top of the seafood with a spatula.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is golden. While the shrimp is baking, boil water and prepare your favorite pasta for serving, if desired.
Serve over pasta, garnished with parsley and lemon wedges.
