Honey Chili Shrimp

Honey Chili Shrimp

serves 6-8 (as an appetizer)

I recently discovered crushed calabrian chili…it is soooooo good….but very spicy! I find mixing it

with an equal amount of honey cuts the heat and makes a very tasty sweet-hot condiment.

One of my favorite uses is on pizza, but is equally great on a cheese plate!

1 pound large shrimp (16-20 shrimp per pound size)

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 tablespoons olive oil

2-3 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced

3 tablespoons honey

3 tablespoons crushed calabrian chili

Combine honey and chili in small bowl and set aside.

In a medium skillet over med-high heat melt butter and olive oil together. Add garlic and saute

about 30 seconds, add shrimp in one layer. Cook shrimp about a minute, then turn over and

cook until opaque..for a total of about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low.

Add honey/chili mixture, stir to combine and warm through.

Serve with toasted baguette.

Note: this would be great served as an entree over rice.
