Shrimp cooked in Chipotle butter


4 Chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, slightly softened
Salt and ground pepper as needed

In a food processor puree the chipotle chilies. Then combine softened butter and blend until smooth. Refrigerate at least for 30 minutes before using.

To saute the shrimp:

8 big shrimp
1 clove garlic, mashed
1 to 2 Tbsps of chipotle butter
juice from 1/2 a lemon
salt and pepper 

Marinate the shrimp with garlic, chipotle butter, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Do not over salt the shrimp.

After 10 minutes, saute the shrimp and a slightly hot saute pan, turning the shrimp as needed. Takes about 3 to 5 minutes to make this dish.
