Are you in a dinner rut? Need a new quick and easy idea? Try this:

Buttery Grilled Shrimp with Tomatoes!

It’s simple and delicious! We got it from where they have tons of great recipes that all use I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. We’ve been using and recommending I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter (and the light version) for years in place of butter because it has 70% less saturated fat than butter and no hydrogenated oils or trans fat, so it lightens up your recipes and makes them healthier but you still get the great buttery flavor, yum. Plus, it’s great on top of toast and veggies!

Buttery Grilled Shrimp with Tomatoes


  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 3 Tbsp. I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® Spread
  • 30 colossal or jumbo shrimp (about 3-1/2 lbs.)
  • 1-1/2 tsp. Kosher salt, divided
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground white pepper, divided
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup tightly packed fresh basil leaves
  • 6 medium tomatoes, at room temperature, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
  • 2 tsp. honey or agave syrup


  1. Heat cumin in 8-inch skillet over low heat until warm and slightly toasted, about 1 minute. Remove from heat, then stir in I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® Spread until melted; set aside.
  2. Brush shrimp on both sides with Spread mixture, then season with 1 teaspoon salt (we actually use less than ¼ teaspoon when we make this recipe and we don’t miss the salt at all!) and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Grill, turning once, until shrimp turn pink, about 3 minutes. Toss shrimp with lemon juice and 1/2 of the basil; set aside.
  3. Arrange tomatoes on serving platter, then sprinkle with remaining salt (we often don’t use the salt here either to reduce the sodium further) and pepper, honey and remaining basil leaves. Top with shrimp and their juices.
