Adapted from Gourmet magazine. This is shrimp, butter & spices, it does NOT contain cream cheese. Originally for toast, but it is AMAZING on baked potato, steak or fish (like tilapia). This is very easy to make & even easier to devour! My first recipe to post! I'm so excited!! Cooking time includes the chill time.
