Use shrimp, butter and garlic for this quick shrimp in butter garlic sauce appetizer that comes together in five minutes with melted butter and garlic.
Shrimp is one of my favourite things to eat. No explanation necessary, I think it’s a favourite for many. The only hang up about shrimp is that it is expensive. But sometimes, for special occasions and holidays, a steaming plate of shrimp in butter garlic sauce is necessary. Personally, I find that when shrimp is slathered in butter and garlic it’s at its best. Again, no explanation necessary. I don’t think there are many savoury foods that become worse when butter and garlic are involved. When I was planning my menu for the Royal Brunch I wasn’t really sure if it was all right to have shrimp at a brunch, but I quickly got over those doubts when I realized how tasty this really is. Plus I’m sure Wills and Kate would be down for shrimp. Yes? No? Who cares, I’m down for shrimp.
Doesn’t shrimp, butter and garlic just make you drool? Plus an appetizer with just three ingredients is pretty much a dream come true for anyone who does a lot of entertaining. Doesn’t it also make you drool that this is ready in less than ten minutes? Do you know what it means when something is ready in ten minutes? It means that instead of spending lots of time cooking (procrastinating) you will have plenty of time to study for that world issues test (of which I should actually be doing right now). Or, if you’re not into world issues, or school in general, it leaves you with plenty of time to spend with your family, or your plants, or Oprah, or your box of tissues while you watch The Notebook or I Am Sam. All of which are things that I find myself doing on a regular basis.
Yep, tons of time for all the important things in life!
