Grilled Shrimp with Browned Butter and Rice

Quick to make and even quicker to disappear.

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

As if grilling large seasoned shrimp on the barbecue isn’t already delicious, when drizzling browned butter over the grilled shrimp the taste is nothing short of amazing.  

Browned butter is also added to the cooked rice which is made in a rice cooker along with thinly sliced mushrooms.

The browned butter adds a subtle nutty and toasted flavor which really complements not only the shrimp but the rice and mushrooms too.

Basmati rice is used in this dish but feel free to change that up to your favorite rice.

I added mushrooms to the rice but you may prefer to add some fresh veggies or just make plain rice.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Browned Butter Shrimp Ingredients

For the Rice – Basmati rice, mushrooms and water

For the Shrimp – Large raw deveined and peeled shrimp with the tails on, butter, green onions, granulated garlic, chili powder, salt, pepper and olive oil

For the Shrimp:

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

To a medium size bowl, add the shrimp.

Then add chili powder…

…granulated garlic…

…salt and pepper.

Gently mix together so that the shrimp is coated with the spices.

To the bowl, add olive oil and mix it with the shrimp and spices.  Set aside.

Next,

lay the shrimp on the preheated grill and…

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

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 finishing this recipe.

Melted Butter

Melted Butter

For the Browned Butter – add the butter to a small skillet and stir as it melts.

Continue stirring.

When the butter turns a golden color…

…remove the skillet from the heat.

At about this time the rice should be done.

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

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

Then,

top with shrimp.

Wait, we’re not done yet.

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

Drizzle the remaining browned butter over the shrimp and rice.
