Image result for images of garlic butter shrimpThe thought of garlic, and butter and shrimp scream DELICIOUSNESS in my head.  Chances are you feel the same, or more than likely you wouldn’t be reading this blog.  I have found a recipe that combines all three of these fabulous and beyond-tasty ingredients and…takes only 20-minutes (or less) to prepare.  At El Toro Gourmet Meats, we carry what we believe to be some of the finest seafood in Orange County.  And for the month of February, 2020 we are featuring our flash-frozen peeled and deveined shrimp – 16-20 count, on sale. Making it even more tempting to cook this up as soon as possible. On sale or not, we carry shrimp all-year-long.


  • Your favorite pasta
  • A light salad with a citrus-vinaigrette dressing
  • Broccoli and French bread to use to dip in the garlic-butter
  • And of course, don’t forget Surf & Turf – We carry Nature’s Own – hormone-free beef


Pair your meal with one of our fine wines from Napa or Sonoma Valley’s and you have a dish that will be a hit time after time.  We’d love to hear from you and even post some pics on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
