Garlic Butter Shrimp with Citrus Lime (Recipe)

It is one of those dishes that packs a punch using very little ingredients. Best served on a plate of steaming hot jasmine rice, this dish was made during my hungry bouts of drinking beer at home. The creamy texture of the shrimp lathered in a citrus buttery sauce was enough to satisfy the hunger of any drinker with the munchies.
