Beer-Boiled Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
Have made this awesome dish 6-8 times over last few years. The base flavors of shrimp and beer complement each other really well, but each time I've added more and additional flavors...which just made it better until this last batch was slightly over the top with too much Old Bay and red pepper flakes. I use 4 lbs jumbo (16-20/lb) shrimp, several small cloves garlic , 2 sticks butter, 1Tb Old Bay (1+1/2 tb was too much), small amt red pepper flakes, a very large,sweet onion, 4-5 bottles corona beer. At end of cooking I added small amt seasoned salt and cracked pepper. Cook gently to barely done if you intend to save some for next day, so doesn't get rubbery or overdone, and reheat gently. You can add additional beer as needed, and the leftover stock is priceless. A light beer is best, heavier ones add too much competing flavor. Outstanding, loved by one and all!
