Sam starts with creating an all-purpose compound butter that includes a half cup of butter, two crushed cloves of garlic, a large minced chipotle pepper, a handful of minced cilantro and a pinch of salt and pepper. You should definitely save the leftovers to use on bread or other recipes.
Sam then heats up the cast iron pan and adds oil, 16-18 large peeled and deveined shrimp with the tail on, and chopped red and green jalapeños and green onions.
After letting it cook for a few minutes, he lifts the pan and adds a 1/4 cup of tequila and flames it above the grill to ensure the grill doesn’t catch on fire. Lastly, he adds a large dollop of the compound butter and some chopped tomatoes.
