Easy Shrimp that Don't Taste like They Were Easy: A flavorful Delight with Considerations for Sustainability

Before we dive into this delectable shrimp recipe, it's important to note that shrimp fishing often results in significant bycatch, making it a less sustainable seafood choice. However, if you do indulge in shrimp, we recommend sourcing them from responsibly farmed suppliers with proper certifications.

Now, onto the dish itself. While tiger shrimp or Argentine red shrimp work wonderfully, any variety will suffice. Begin by choosing whether you prefer raw peeled or unpeeled, veined or deveined shrimp, based on your comfort level. Finely dice shallots, garlic, and ginger, and sauté them in a pan with a little oil over medium heat. Add sambal (chili paste) and honey, adjusting the quantities to achieve your desired level of spiciness and sweetness. Incorporate four scoops of Butter Buddies Honey Chili Butter and sauté for approximately five minutes, until the mixture turns sticky. Now, it's time to introduce your shrimp to the pan. Cook for about five minutes, or until the shrimp turn opaque and reach an internal temperature of 145°F, taking care not to overcook them.

And there you have it—a simple yet incredibly flavourful shrimp dish that will impress your taste buds. Pair it with a vibrant green vegetable and a side of rice, serve it over a bed of noodles, or even enjoy it on skewers for a delightful handheld treat as you explore the town. The choice is yours, and the shrimp are ready to take centre stage in your culinary adventures.
