Broiled Shrimp with Garlic Butter Sauce

Broiled Shrimp with Garlic Butter

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chopped shallots
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Fine sea salt, to taste
  • 24 uncooked large shrimp, shell and tail on
  •  1/3 cup white wine

Preheat the broiler. Place the butter in a small bowl and stir in the garlic, shallots, parsley, lemon juice and salt. Cut the shrimp in half lengthwise, leaving them attached at the tail. Spread the shrimp open and arrange them in a shallow, oval casserole. Top the shrimp with generous dabs of the butter mixture and pour wine into the dish. Broil the shrimp until they are cooked through, about 4 minutes. Arrange the shrimp in a line across 4 plates, so that the tail of each shrimp fits inside the shrimp in front of it. Whisk the liquid in the casserole dish and pour it over the shrimp. Serve immediately.
