Great different taste than I'm used to in shrimp. Next time I would cut way down on the butter (was just a bit too rich for me as written) and add some garlic. I found that it was absolutely necessary to let the shrimp sit in the beer mixture for the full half-hour...improved the taste and made them exceptionally tender. My husband loved this dish! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
WOW! I tried this recipe and it came out de-lici-ous! I actually made this with 2 1/2 pounds of shrimp half the butter and 2 beers to boil in followed the rest as stated and also took reviewers advise and added old bay.. I also added garlic and added bay leaves and let it sit for 30 minutes (shripm will not turn rubbery!). Came out stupendous! served with yellow rice and had a restaurant quality meal made by a trusty person (me lol) I would recommend this to anyone!
This is better than "outa this world"! I did reduce the butter (Whew!) to 2 sticks (to reduce my guilt) and then followed recipe as directed. I also saved liquid and used it in a big pot of shrimp creole and it was one of the best I've ever done and whatever guilt I had is long gone!! Thank you.
YUMMERS! I had 2 pounds of shrimp and began the recipe from memory. I thought the original stated 1 cup of butter so I accordingly halved it to 1/2 a cup or one stick. I used 2 beers and added garlic and Old Bay Spice as well. The shrimp was divine! Great with pasta and French bread to suck up all the juices. I have frozen the rest of the broth for fish sou someday. So even though I inadvertently cut the butter WAY down (and I am a butter freak) it was superb and I will keep to the one stick whenever I make this dish again.
This recipe was SO EASY that it's hard to believe it was SO GOOD!! My whole family LOVED it (even the kids). I halved the recipe and still had plenty of stock left for soup or gumbo. I will be making this recipe again soon!!
This was great! I didn't have any onions but I will definitely try it with them next time. I cut way back on the butter mainly because I served them with clarified butter. I also added garlic cloves and Old Bay. Definitely a keeper!
I felt this was really bland. I kicked it a bit by: 2 cans a beer ( any beer will do) 1 qt water 3T hot pepper flakes 1/4 c of old bay. For the onion I cut 3 onions in half and allowed them to boil for 10-12 minutes then added my shrimp and boiled until pink.
