I thought this was very good, although it got mixed reviews from my family. It was a very simple dish and the seafood is the star. Great flavors from the seafood and beer. I think this would be great with some fresh tomato salsa on top, thanks for sharing! Made this for the Rail Riding Rowdies ZWT5.
