8 ounces of BBQ shrimp stock
2 tablespoons of BBQ shrimp butter
1 teaspoon of freshly minced herbs
1 Lemon cheek
3 pieces of buttered and grilled French baguette
Salt as needed
Canola oil as needed
1. Layout the 10 shrimp and lightly season with salt. Turn on a sauté pan to get hot, and add oil to coat.
2. Once the pan is hot, add the shrimp and sear on both sides. Cook the shrimp to a medium temperature, and then add the BBQ shrimp stock to deglaze.
3. After 30 seconds, mound the shrimp and stock with the BBQ shrimp butter. Once the butter is fully incorporated add the fresh herbs and adjust the seasoning. The Shrimp butter does have a good bit of seasoning in it so adjust lightly to your preferred taste.
