It’s well noted on the pages of Lemony Thyme that Sage Brown Butter is something I’m passionate about. The best way to describe it…’sensual.’ Definition ‘sen-su-al’ adjective: “relating to or consisting in the gratification of the senses or the indulgence of appetite.” It seemed like a natural way to build this Shrimp Scampi dish.
