    Muffin Goddess's Note:

    Great shrimp appetizer. You could probably stretch this into a meal with some couscous and veggies, too. Untried by me, posted for ZWT. Adapted from "Around the World in 450 Recipes".

    1. 1
      Heat the olive oil and butter in a large frying pan. When the butter begins to sizzle, add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds.
    2. 2
      Add the spices (cumin, ginger, paprika and cayenne pepper) to the pan. Cook, stirring, for a few seconds.
    3. 3
      Add the shrimp. Cook shrimp for 2-3 minutes over high heat, stirring to avoid burning the spices. As soon as all the shrimp have turned pink, they're done. Avoid cooking for much longer past this point, because shrimp very easily become overcooked.
    4. 4
      Transfer shrimp to warmed serving dishes. Pour the spicy butter mixture over each serving. Garnish with lemon wedges and some chopped cilantro.
    5. 5
      Serve immediately.

      Made this as one of our shrimp appetizers to our dinner last and it was a hit!! I only made 1/2 of the recipe and we chose to grill the shrimp, like we were the others, and basted them with the marinade/sauce. I then served it with some of the reserved sauce and lemon wedges. Like other reviewers stated, definitely no hot but nice and tasty with a little bit of the heat, which I really enjoyed. Thanks for sharing a great recipe. Made for ZWT 9.

      Very easy to make with tons of flavor. It was not hot at all, instead the spices created a very smoky flavor. I'll be keeping this recipe for the future.

      Great flavor! It wasn't very hot to me, so next time I will add a little more heat. Loved it though! I paired it with Naan. Yummy!
