This shrimp has just been declared the best shrimp ever in our house. I kind of threw it together at the last minute loosely based on a grilled shrimp recipe from a Tyler Florence cookbook. It is so simple, but extremely delicious. You can prepare it in about 15 minutes, so it's a great weeknight protein paired with a simple salad and some crusty bread (for soaking up the left over basil butter). Yum!
10 to 12 large raw shrimp, peeled & tails removed
3 tablespoons butter, softened
large handful of basil leaves, chopped + additional for garnish
