August 6, 2010

Michael Butler makes Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts


  • 1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
  • 3 tablespoons good olive oil
  • 4 cloves crushed garlic
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut off the brown ends of the Brussels sprouts and pull off any
yellow outer leaves. Mix them in a bowl with the olive oil, garlic, salt and
pepper. Pour them on a sheet pan and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until
crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Shake the pan from time
to time to brown the sprouts evenly. Sprinkle with more kosher salt, and
serve immediately.

Satanic Shrimp Fra Diavolo – Cooking WIth Butler

July 19, 2010


  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled, deveined
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus additional as needed
  • 1 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus 1 to 2 tablespoons
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 3 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
  • 3 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves


Toss the shrimp in a medium bowl with 1 teaspoon of salt and red
pepper flakes. Heat the 3 tablespoons oil in a heavy large skillet over
medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and saute for about a minute, toss,
and continue cooking until just cooked through, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Transfer the shrimp to a large plate; set aside. Add the onion to the
same skillet, adding 1 to 2 teaspoons of olive oil to the pan, if
necessary, and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the
tomatoes with their juices, wine, garlic, and oregano. Simmer until the
sauce thickens slightly, about 10 minutes. Return the shrimp and any
accumulated juices to the tomato mixture; toss to coat, and cook for
about a minute so the flavors meld together. Stir in the parsley and
basil. Season with more salt, to taste, and serve.

Cooking With Butler-March of The Crab Cakes

January 3, 2010

A Christmas tradition at our house is a dungenes crab feast. I always make sure I get more crab than I need so O can make crab cakes the next day. This recipe is made Louisiana style with creole seasoning and the “holy trinity”, which is onions, celery and bell peppers. So far it is the best tasting crab cakes I’ve ever had. It is better and much cheaper than you will get in even the finest restaurants. As a bonus, I show you a quick and easy caesar salad recipe. I’m getting hungry just writing this!
