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!

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 the recipe exactly BUT did change a little. After cooking and letting stand - I put the shrimp in a bowl with paper towels.

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. Read More
