seasoning in bowl

To make shrimp:
6 medium shrimp (shell on)
4 tbs butter
A good sprinkle of the rub.

Let butter bubble and caramelize to bring out the nutty flavor of the butter. Add shrimp and do a quick sauté and then add rub. Do not overcook or you will be eating little erasers. When the shrimp are done (4 min or 2 min per side, shrimp should be opaque) then pour the contents of the pan into a bowl.
