Spicy Garlic and Lemon Crusted Shrimp

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Little Suzy Homemak

Found this shrimp recipe in an ad for Wild American Shrimp. Prep time does not include 1 hour to marinate. Meant to be an appetizer for 4 but could be main dish for 2.

I used a Stout beer and it worked out great! Great flavors with all the spices and shrimp. Loved it!
