Cannabutter Shrimp

I love a good seafood meal, and one of my absolute favourite dishes is shrimp in garlic butter. So I thought, why not adapt the dish slightly, to shrimp in cannabutter? Check our old post if you need help getting from cannabis seeds to cannabutter.

I made this dish last night and the evening simply sailed away.

Cannabutter Shrimp

1 1/2 cups shrimp
1 cup white vinegar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup fresh basil (finely chopped)
1/3 oz. fine ganja leaves
1 stick butter
2 tsp thyme
2 tsp oregano
3 large baking potatoes
1 cup flour
1 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp paprika
1 yellow onion (finely chopped)
3 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)
4 tsp good olive oil

Mix the white vinegar, basil, thyme and oregano, and use this to marinate the shrimp. Leave the shrimp in the shells and allow them to marinate for 2 hours. Melt the butter in a double boiler and add in the ganja, allowing it to heat for 20 minutes.
Cut the potatoes into thick wedges. Place the flour, pepper and paprika into a paper bag, wet the potatoes, and toss them in the flour, paprika and pepper. Fry the wedges until golden brown and allow them to cool.
Sauté the onion and garlic in the olive oil, and toss in the shrimp, cooking until tender. Dip the shrimp in the cannabutter and serve with the wedges.
