Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Hot Honey Butter Shrimp

Looking for some sweet summer heat? Whether your grilling, sautéing, or roasting, this shrimp has it all!  And it comes together in no time.

For a pound of shrimp, combine a tablespoon and a half each of honey and butter in a small sauce pot and warm over low heat. For the spice, stir in either an 1/8th of a teaspoon of cayenne, a thinly sliced seeded jalapeno, or some chopped canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Just depends on what else you’re serving it with and what you have around. Salt to taste.

Five minutes before you’re ready to serve, salt and pepper your shrimp, cook until done, and toss with the honey butter sauce until coated well.

Happy Summer!
