We love how easy and fast this recipe is! This is excellent for a weeknight meal, tasty enough to serve to guests, and light enough for a hot day.

Make It Potluck or Pre-Made Lunch Friendly: To make it a potluck friendly meal, cut the butter and half and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. This will keep the butter from congealing when it cools to room temperature.

No Waste Kitchen: If you bought shell-on shrimp, you can triple the butter and sauté the shrimp shells until they are red, and remove them. The butter will take on a delicious shrimpy flavour. The shells will absorb some butter which is why we recommend tripling the amount added to the pan.

About Culinary Slut

We are not professional chefs; nor are we professional food reviewers or travel writers. We are, however, food and travel obsessed. Food is more than fuel, and we experience it (whether at home or abroad) through a lens polished by our travel experiences. Food is tradition, history, family, celebration. It brings us together, it reflects the world we live in and where we came from. In many ways, food defines communities and our cultures. It can be creative, joyful and comforting. Food is life.   

We come from humble backgrounds and that allows us to appreciate humble noshing; at the same time
, we have achieved some small measure of success that allows us to travel and gives us access to culinary artistry. We both come from cultures where food is central to community and family and is symbolic of friendship.

A quick word about reviews: you will not find negative reviews on Culinary Slut. While we may poke fun at times, it is as much at ourselves for risking food and travel experiences that are a bit "off the wall" (or the beaten path).  That sometimes leads us to experiences that are a bit less-than-perfect (and that's putting it mildly). But, if we don't like something, we just don't post about it. Instead, we’re here to have fun and share our experiences with you in the hopes that you'll find them as fun and wondrous as we do.
