Low Country Shrimp Toast

  • 2lbs. Wild Georgia Shrimp
  • 4tsp Garlic, chopped
  • 4tsp Cayenne
  • 2tsp Black Pepper, ground
  • 4tsp Kosher Salt
  • 2cups White Wine
  • 1pound Unsalted Butter, diced
  • 4 slices Southern Sandwich Bread
  • 4 Tbsp Butter

In a skillet over medium-high heat, brown the shrimp until the shrimp is about halfway cooked through. Add the garlic, cayenne, black pepper, & salt.  Add the white wine and cook for another minute, until the shrimp are cooked through. Remove the shrimp from the pan and reduce the sauce to a thick syrup, about ½ a cup.  Remove from heat and add the shrimp and sauce to a food processor.  Pulse the shrimp in the food processor, adding the butter, until smooth.

Heat a griddle to medium heat, melt the remaining butter, and toast the bread slices.  Spread the Shrimp Butter on the toast and serve with a green salad and heirloom tomatoes.
