Spicy Glazed Shrimp


Bin 8945 Wine Bar & Bistro • Los Angeles

These shrimp, which are coated in a fiery butter sauce, are based on a dish that chef Matt Carpenter encountered at cook shacks along the beach in Jamaica's Montego Bay. The surprise ingredient is ketchup, which is often used in Caribbean cooking.
