Ingredients:

Grilled Shrimp: – 1 pound (26-30 count) Cleaned and Peeled Raw Frozen Shrimp – 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil – 1/4 cup Lemon Juice – 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Salt – 1/2 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper Herb Compound Butter: – 1 stick (4 ounces) softened Real California Butter – 2 tablespoons fresh chopped Parsley or any fresh herb you like – 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder You will also need: – 8 Wooden Skewers, soaked in water for at least 2 hours

Directions:

Prepare butter. Mix parsley & garlic powder into room temperature, softened butter.

Spoon into heart molds & let set in the fridge for a few hours until firm.

Thaw shrimp in cold water bath. Drain. Place shrimp in the Ziploc bag.

Add the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic salt & pepper to the bag.

Zip the bag and combine all with your fingers.

Place the bag in a bowl (so it does not leak) and let shrimp marinate in the fridge for 1-2 hours.

Remove shrimp from the fridge & thread 4 onto each soaked skewer.

Coat a grill pan with some olive oil & heat on medium high heat.

Place shrimp skewers flat in the pan. Heat a few minutes on each side until you have grill marks & the shrimp is pink, opaque & cooked through.

Remove butter hearts from the molds.

Serve shrimp skewers hot with the butter hearts.
