This recipe combines some of my favorite ingredients; beer, hot sauce and shrimp. Cooking with beer is always cool. Just remember not to waste that 1/4 can of beer that is left over!

This was incredibly easy to make. The only time delay is waiting for the marinade to do it's stuff. This would be an excellent munchie during football season! Read More

We made a few changes because we wanted peel and eat shrimp. I followed the recipe for the marinade (step 1) but instead of putting the shrimp on skewers I put the liquid from the bowl in a wok and boiled it and then added the shrimp and cooked them until they turned pink. Then I tossed them in a sauce made of butter and cajun seasoning. They were great! Read More

I thought these were good but they just didn't marinate as well as i thought they would. But maybe that's just shrimp period...anyways it was good. Read More

This was a really great marinade for shrimp. The only thing I changed was to add a lot more hot sauce because my husband likes really spicy food! Other than that it's a great recipe! Read More
