"What a lovely way to fix shrimp! I was looking for something different from my usual shrimp scampi, and this was just what I needed. Out of this world flavor, and so simple to make. Even Picky Wife raved about it!"- billmc44

Butter and Herb Poached Shrimp Preparation
In a sauce pan on Medium heat add water and butter. Allow the butter to completely melt ( about 2 minutes). Add Basil, Cayenne Pepper, Salt, Pepper, and Paprika. Cook on Medium heat for about 2-3 minutes stirring slowly so that the butter is infused with the flavors. Lower the heat to Low.
Add Shrimp and stir slowly until shrimp turns a nice coral color and the tails curl.
(3 Minutes with Extra Large Shrimp max 4-5 Minutes)
Be careful not to over cook the shrimp or it will become rubbery.
