Wild Shrimp Wasabi

Where my family lives in LA (Lower Alabama), there's a restaurant we love called Lulu's. It's owned by Lucy Buffett, Jimmy Buffett's sister. This recipe comes from Lulu and is a great appetizer if you like things hot and spicy!

Wild Shrimp Wasabi

Serves 4 to 6

• 1 tablespoon wasabi powder
• 1/4 cup beer
• 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
• 2 pounds large headless shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails intact
• 1/2 teaspoon course sea salt
• 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
• 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro
• Lime slices for garnish

1. Combine wasabi powder, beer and horseradish. Set aside.
2. Peel and de-vein shrimp, leaving tails intact.
3. Place a cast iron skillet over high heat. When it begins to smoke, add shrimp. Shake skillet and toss or stir shrimp for 15 seconds or until they just begin to turn pink.
4. Add salt, wasabi mixture and butter. Stir quickly, turning shrimp for another 15 seconds, then cover tightly and remove from heat. Let shrimp rest for 5 minutes.
5. Add cilantro, stir once, and cover again. Wait another 5 minutes.
6. Garnish with lime slices and serve immediately.
