Southern BBQ Style Sauteed Shrimp
These shrimp are rubbed down with a Southern-BBQ style dry rub, and with a quick saute in butter they can be done within 5 minutes of guests walking in the door.
They are finger-licking with a a smoky flavor, and are the perfect companion to a cold beer.
For an appetizer, serve this with lots of napkins. For a meal, serve over steamed rice with a salad or vegetable on the side.
