Lime Garlic Shrimp

I love to make compound butters and this is one of my favorite treatments for shrimp! I served with Zucchini and Coconut Rice. You can grill the Zucchini right along with the shrimp so the cleanup is easy as well.

shrimp (use larger ones 15/20's), I plan on about 6 shrimp/per person
1/2 stick butter (softened)
1 lime
1/4 to 1/2 tsp finely diced garlic

Peel, devein shrimp and place on skewers (be sure and soak in water)
juice the lime and mix with the the softened butter
zest the lime and mix into the butter mixture
add curry powder and I also put a dash of Cayenne
dash of salt, mix well and set aside

Throw your shrimps on the grill for a minute or two, flip and cook till they turn pink, remove and brush the lime butter on while they are still warm. Remove from skewers and serve immediately

*I served with Coconut Rice and Zucchini (cut in half, drizzle on a bit of olive oil, salt pepper and whatever seasonings you wish and cook alongside the shrimp on the barbecue)

I don't think many people give compound butter the love it deserves. It is a great way to for anything from corn to even shrimp. Great use of the beautiful compound butter!

Finishing some of Cheryl's drafts... Keeping spatchcocking simple. Using a VERY sharp cleaver or kitchen shears -- not scissors, carefu...
