Garlic Butter
  • 1/2 cup salted butter

Garlic Butter:

  • In a small sauce pot, combine all the ingredients and place over medium heat. 
  • Cook gently, allowing garlic to become aromatic, approximately 3-5 minutes. Do not overcook, as garlic tends to burn easily and become bitter. 
  • Place in ramekin for dipping shrimp. 


  • Pile grilled shrimp on large platter and serve with garlic butter and lemon on the side

  • Green goddess dressing or tartar sauce
