Orange Zest and Brown Butter Shrimp

This meal was amazing I could not even believe how amazing the flavors of this were.  I was kind of thinking I might not care for it since it was combining thyme, chili powder and the orange zest, but it was the tastiest shrimp ever……so delicious!

Serves 8

 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • zest of one orange
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 lbs. raw shrimp
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Heat the butter in a medium skillet over low heat. When the butter is melted, add the thyme leaves. Stir and simmer, keeping the heat low (it burns easily), for 5 minutes or until the butter reaches a golden brown color. Remove from heat and stir in the zest. Pour the butter into a small bowl and let it rest for a few minutes.
  2. In the same skillet, with a light coating of the butter remaining, add the garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add the raw shrimp and the chili powder; shake or toss in the pan for 3-5 minutes or until the shrimp is no longer translucent. Serve with the butter and pasta, grains, rice, or a salad.
