Buttery Garlic & Garden Herb Grilled Jumbo Shrimp

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by NcMysteryShopper

Have napkins ready for this starter course! Peel these bad boys at the table and lick the garlic and herb butter from your fingers! Caribbean rum really adds a wonderful flavor! WINE: Crack open a bottle of Viognier, the dry fruity wine is lovely with the garlic and shrimp.

Wow! This was superlicious! I skipped the rum, since I'm not a fan, but it was really awesome without it. I'm going to make this one again for sure! Thank you.

  1. Pulse parsley, basil, garlic and shallots in food processor until finely minced (or mince with knife).
  2. Add minced mixture to small sauce pan with butter until butter can be stirred and ingredients combined; medium heat.
  3. Light a grill or heat a grill pan.
  4. Spread Shrimp open and season with salt & pepper, and brush liberally with the herb butter.
  5. Grill over a medium-hot flame, shell side down, until slightly charred, about 1 minute. Turn and grill the other side until lightly browned, about 40 seconds. Flip again and lather with more herb butter, sprinkle with rum and grill until barely cooked through and bubbling, about 1 minute longer.
