Garlic Butter Shrimp with Capers

Capers are pickled flower buds of a thorny shrub that grows all over the Mediterranean. When pickled they have a salty-sour pungency that adds amazing flavor to this recipe. The quality of capers is inversely related to their size, the smaller the better. Capers are easily found in grocery stores where you normally find pickles.
