Ingredients

    Garlic Butter

  • ½ cup (115 g) salted butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp chives, finely chopped
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper

    Shrimp and Garlic Bread

  • 1 lb (450 g) large raw shrimp (16-20), shelled and deveined with tails intact
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) olive oil
  • ½ baguette
  • 1 lemon, halved

Preparation

  1. Preheat the grill, setting the burners to high. Oil the grate.

Garlic Butter

  1. Meanwhile, in a small pot over medium heat, melt the butter with the garlic. Off the heat, add the herbs. Add the cayenne and mix to combine. Season with salt and pepper.

Shrimp and Garlic Bread

  1. If desired, thread the shrimp onto skewers for easier barbecuing. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper. Brush with the oil.
  2. Cut the baguette into slices without going all the way through to the bottom (hasselback-style). Brush with the garlic butter. Wrap the bread in foil. Cook on the barbecue for 5 minutes. Keep warm.
  3. Place the lemon halves, cut side down, on the grill and cook for 3 minutes. Grill the shrimp for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Remove from the heat. With a pastry brush, coat the shrimp with the garlic butter, to taste.
  4. Arrange the shrimp in a serving dish. Drizzle with the juice of the grilled lemon and serve with garlic bread..
