Add shrimp and cook until shrimp turn pink, about 1 1/2 minutes per side.
Reduce heat to medium and whisk in butter, a few cubes at a time, whisking constantly.
Add additional butter once the butter has completely melted.
Remove sauté pan from heat and transfer shrimp and sauce into a bowl for serving.
Serve with warm French bread for soaking up all this luscious sauce.
