There’s nothing better than warm garlic butter sauce poured over succulent shrimp with a fresh zest of lemon, piled high on a bed of pasta!

Well, that is unless you’re dairy free… until now!

I’ve partnered up with Melt to bring you a new dairy-free spin on this classic dish.

Melt is an organic blend of healthy oils and the perfect “butter alternative”. It’s made with the healthiest fruit & plant based oils including virgin coconut oil, hi-oleic sunflower, palm fruit and canola oils.

It “Melts” up just like traditional butter, but with half the saturated fat and fewer calories!
