Ingredients

  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 Cup white miso
  • 1/2 Teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon thinly sliced scallion, plus more for garnish
  • 1 Pound shelled and deveined shrimp
  • 2 Tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 Teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon pickled mustard seeds in brine

Directions

In a food processor, combine butter, miso, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Purée until smooth. Add the scallion and pulse until just incorporated. Scrape the miso butter into a large bowl, and set aside.

In a separate large bowl, toss the shrimp with the oil, garlic, chili powder, and salt. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Light a grill. Grill the shrimp over high heat, turning once, until just cooked through, about 4 minutes.

Immediately add the cooked shrimp to the miso butter and toss until well coated. Garnish with scallions, and mustard seeds.

Grilled Shrimp Shopping Tip

It may be tempting to buy peeled, deveined shrimp, but if you're going to be grilling them, you'll get juicier shrimp if you leave the shell on.

Grilled Shrimp Cooking Tip

Make sure to thoroughly rinse and dry the shrimp before cooking them.
