Preheat oven to 350°F. Oil a 9x13-inch baking dish with 2 tablespoons of the oil. Set aside. Make a cut along the length of the back of each shrimp and remove vein. Don't cut all the way through the shrimp but just deep enough to open the shrimp to lay flat.

Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Cook the garlic and mushrooms until the mushrooms have released their liquid, 5 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and add bread crumbs, parsley, chives, butter, salt, pepper and cayenne.

Set shrimp backs-down in the prepared baking dish and spread them flat. Pile even amounts of the crumb mixture on top of each.

Bake shrimp until they are pink and cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter. Lightly sprinkle with paprika and serve with lemon wedges.
