This apetizer is so popular that I now make it for nearly every party, as do many of my friends. The recipe is from the New Basics Cookbook and is positively delicious (and easy!).


  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Melt butter in saucepan.
  3. Stir in the turmeric, cumin, coriander, salt and lemon juice.
  4. Arrange shrimp in single layer in a shallow broiling pan (don't use flat sheet as the butter will overflow the side.) Spread the butter mixture over the shrimp.
  5. Broil until the shrimp are glazed and golden brown, about 8 minutes.
  6. Skewer with toothpicks and serve immediately.
