Shrimp Butter

Cooking the shrimp shells until they're uniformly pink and give off a toasty aroma ensures that they've infused the butter. Spoon 1-tablespoon portions of cooled shrimp butter into an ice-cube tray. Cover with plastic wrap; freeze until solid. Keep butter cubes frozen in an airtight container for up to three months. Thaw before using.
