These shrimp are AMAZING... super-flavorful, pretty to look at, and juicy in the center. I too added Adobo seasoning, and added a bit more beer for a less thick batter. I had some leftover batter, so I ended up making hush puppies that were almost has good as the shrimp themselves. I will be making this recipe often, I think.
