Grilled Shrimp with Brown Butter and Rice

Have you tried cooking with brown butter before?

I recently started trying it with different recipes and it adds such a nice flavor.  It’s one of my new fave ingredients to cook with.

Brown butter smells soooo good when it’s cooking and tastes even better.

I made this dish for our very good friends (hi M and J!) and it was a big hit.

Feel free to customize it to your liking.  I added mushrooms to the rice but maybe you would prefer to add some fresh veggies or just make plain rice.

You could even put the shrimp on skewers….hey, why didn’t I think of that when I was making these!

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Large raw deveined and peeled shrimp with the tails on, basmati rice, butter, mushrooms, green onions, garlic powder, and ground black pepper.  The chili powder, salt and olive oil were camera shy.  They’re hiding in the background.
Here’s how to make it.

Start by rinsing the rice.  Feel free to use another kind of rice if you prefer.

Add the rice to the rice cooker.

Then, slice the mushrooms…..

….and add the mushrooms to the rice cooker.

Next add the water to the rice cooker and set it to cook.

While the rice is cooking, start the grill on medium heat.

Add the raw shrimp to a medium size bowl.

Then add the chili powder….

…..the garlic powder….

….and the salt and pepper.

Next, mix the spices in with the shrimp.

Then add the olive oil and mix it in with the shrimp and spices.  Set aside.

Cut the green onions into small pieces and set aside.

Then,

add the shrimp on the grill and…..

…..cook on both sides until done (about 3 to 4 minutes per side for large shrimp).

Next,

Remove the shrimp from the grill,

and set aside for just a moment while browning the butter.

You know what’s so hard about making this recipe?

Not grabbing one or all of these shrimp and eating them before I take the pictures for you.

Add the butter to a small skillet and stir as it melts.

Continue stirring.

When it turns a golden color….

…..remove the skillet from the heat.

At about this time the rice should be done.

Add half of the brown butter to the rice and gently mix it together.

Add the rice to a serving dish (or individual serving dishes).

Then,

top with the shrimp.

Wait, we’re not done yet.

We need to add more of the secret ingredient, brown butter!

Drizzle the remaining brown butter over the shrimp and rice.

Wow, this is where I’m rushing to take the pictures so I can bite into these yummy shrimp, and rice, with green onions, and brown butter!

Top with the pieces of green onion.

Serve with a side of veggies or salad and…

…Enjoy!

    This looks delicious. I can’t wait to try it. I love using browned butter in baking, but using it with shrimp sounds fantastic.
