Spicy Drunken Shrimp

Spicy Drunken Shrimp


"This is a warm peel-and-eat shrimp recipe that I tried to duplicate from a little bar-and-grill in Deland, Florida. The shrimp are boiled in a spicy beer and thyme broth and served hot in a beer mug. Serve with dipping sauces of lemon-butter and hot sauce. I dip first in lemon-butter and then hot sauce, but you will find what works best for you! You will need plenty of paper towels!"

  1. Stir beer, lemon juice, seafood seasoning, thyme, and hot pepper sauce together in a non-reactive saucepan; bring to a boil and add shrimp. Return liquid to a simmer and cook shrimp until they are bright pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center, about 3 minutes.
  2. Remove pan from heat and let shrimp sit in liquid at least 5 minutes more before draining. Let shrimp cool until cool enough to touch.

I made no changes. I follow recipes to the letter on the first time. I WILL NOT change anything on this one. It is tied with the best I have ever had! OK - We had friends over and I followed...

I'm giving this recipe 5 stars. It was simple and fast. I also thought it was delicious . I paired it with fresh pasta in a garlic parsley butter sauce with lots of fresh lemon.
