A couple of weeks ago, we had a massive Temaki sushi party with friends. If you’ve never been to one, I highly suggest making friends with the fine folks at I Love Blue Sea  or head over to Casson Trenor’s site, Sustainable Sushi and host a sushi party of your own.

Grilled Shrimp with Chili Lime Butter

It’s another episode of Good Bite, this time our topic was shrimp, which is such a biiig….wiiiide…topic! I continued my lovefest with Dr. BBQ and chose a recipe from one of his cookbooks, Grilled Shrimp with Chili Lime Butter, a seriously easy yet cool-looking recipe because you serve the chili-lime butter in a shot glass! Genius. Since it is in …
