Shrimp and scallops in Margarita Butter

Post  Junk Yard Dog on Sat Nov 15, 2008 12:40 am

I just tried a new recipe that was in the Houston Chronicle a few days ago. It is outstanding. The Margarita Butter is amazing on shrimp and scallops, and I can't wait to try it on red snapper. Recipes and pictures follow:





Shrimp and scallops
----------------------
12 jumbo shrimp, tails left on
12 large scallops
1 Tbsp chili powder
Salt, to taste
Ground black pepper, to taste
2 Tbsp olive oil

Heat grill to about 450 degrees and oil the grate. Season shrimp and scallops with chili powder, salt and pepper. Brush with oil. Grill each side for 5 to 6 minutes. Serve drizzled with Margarita Butter.
(makes 4 servings)

Margarita Butter
------------------
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 C diced red onion
1/2 C white wine
1/2 C heavy cream
1 C (2 sticks) unsalted butter
1 (3 Tbsp) shot tequila
Juice of one lime
Salt, to taste
Ground black pepper, to taste

Heat a small saucepan over medium-high heat and add oil. Add onion and cook until translucent. Deglaze pan with wine and reduce by half. Add cream, lower heat and reduce by half. Stir in butter a bit at a time, over low heat, until all is used and sauce is thickened. Stir in tequila and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper. (makes 2 cups)
