Peel shrimp, leaving tail on. De-vein and partially butterfly; reserve. Preheat toaster oven to 425°F on bake setting. Combine melted butter, olive oil, shallot, garlic, herbes de Provence, dry mustard, salt, and pepper. Spread half of this mixture in a 1¼-quart ovenproof oval dish. Arrange shrimp evenly over the butter/oil mixture. Pour the vermouth and the remaining butter/oil mixture over the shrimp. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes. Remove from oven, stir gently to loosen – shrimp should be beginning to curl and be somewhat opaque and “shrimp” in color. Sprinkle evenly with breadcrumbs and half the chopped parsley. Return to the oven for an additional 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from oven, drizzle with lemon juice and sprinkle with remaining chopped parsley. Serve with additional lemon wedges.
