This was well received at my house. The only thing I did differently was to remove the pot from the heat as soon as it came to a boil after adding the shrimp. I didn't want to over cook the shrimp. I left them in the hot beer for about 5 minutes. Thanks for sharing!

Very similar to what i do,except I add a teaspoon of vinegar to it so they peel easier,I also add a tablespoon of caraway seeds to the boil.

I didn't have the crab boil, so I had to substitute spices I had on hand. I used a blend of minced onion/garlic and some dried parsley and dill. I also didn't want to overcook, so as soon as the shrimp started to boil and turn pink (I used shell on shrimp) I pulled them off the heat, and drained immediately. I then put them in the freezer to cool down to serve as a cold appetizer with some home made cocktail sauce (organic ketchup and horseradish mix).
