Today: A zesty butter sauce to slather on everything -- starting with baby zucchini.
Shop the Story
We first started serving this sauce years ago, spooned over fat shrimp that had been grilled in their shells over hardwood coals. We'd peel and eat the shrimp, dipping them in the sauce, licking the deliciousness off our fingers. It was so addictive we found ourselves putting more sauce onto the plate so we could mop it up with hunks of warm bread. But why stop at shrimp? Now we spoon it on steamed spinach, roasted beets, or cooked vegetables like these.
