Garlicky Appetizer Shrimp Scampi

Recipe name: Garlicky Appetizer Shrimp Scampi
Source: All Recipes
Servings: 3
Cookbook date: September 3

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 tablespoons olive oil
1-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1-1/2 teaspoons minced shallots
1 tablespoon minced fresh chives
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 pound large shrimp - peeled and deveined

Preheat grill for high heat.
In a large bowl, mix together softened butter, olive oil, garlic, shallots, chives, salt, pepper, and paprika; add the shrimp, and toss to coat. Lightly oil grill grate. Cook the shrimp as close to the flame as possible for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until opaque.

This recipe is super easy, as long as you ignore the whole "use the grill" thing. I just sauteed the shrimp in a pan over the stove. Tim didn't really like this, but that's because he doesn't like shrimp (his loss, right?). I served this over rice and thought it was an awesome, indulgent meal. Yay butter!
