Dirty Shrimp in Butter-Beer Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

Herby, spicy shrimp with a kick, in a buttery-beer "sauce". Fast, easy and delicious, serve as an appetizer, or a dinner over rice or with lots of crusty French bread to soak up all the tasty, herbalicious sauce!

This recipe is delicious, I have made this 5 times now.
The amount of cayenne pepper in the recipe does make it quite hot so the last time I made this I substituted cajun instead of cayenne and it was perfect.
I also cut down the time of making this recipe by using 1 &1/2 teaspoons of garlic powder instead of chopping garlic, I found no difference.
Tossed with linguini noodles is the best!
I also double the recipe as the original does not make much.
