Great shrimp. Loved all the herbs and spices which provided just the right amount of heat. I decreased the amount of beer in the sauce to about 1/4 cup. Served over rice, it was a very tasty meal. Thank you.

Very tasty; quick; easy. I eyeballed all measurements since I had more than 12 shrimp. We'll DEFINITELY have this again. Thanks, JeriB.
