"I pity the shrimp that matches wits with you Jeeves" - P.G. Wodehouse

The refrigerator light goes on...

Shrimp dishes are great because they are just so darn quick. The hardest part of making dinner is deciding what to go with your shrimp.

This recipe is a great example and is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner. It is super simple to mix up some yummy butter, put a bit of olive oil in a pan, sauté your shrimp and add the butter to make a great sauce.

There are so many great side dishes to serve this recipe with. It is great with Mexican Rice or Cilantro Rice. There's enough sauce to add some extra zing to the rice. It is also great with Cheese Grits and a roasted vegetable like asparagus or broccoli.
