Jumbo Shrimp With Chive Butter

Total Time

Cook 5 mins

As Bon Appetit says, the sauce does double duty, part baste and later dipping. From the june 1990 issue of bon appetit. I changed it a little by adding jalapeno, but you can omit.

This is a very delicious way to prepare shrimp. Loved the dipping sauce and made as directed with no changes. Will definitely make this dish again. Made for the FYC tag game.

Delicious! I reduced the Dijon to 3 tablespoons, increased the jalapeno and also added in 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder to the mustard/lemon mixture, thanks for sharing Marra!
