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.

  1. Combine shrimp, garlic, shallots, black pepper, salt, lmeon zest and juice, thyme sprigs, Worcestershire, hot sauce, and beer in a large bowl. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour and up to 6 hours.
  2. Heat a 12-inch skillet over moderately high heat until hot, then add 2 tablespoons of the butter and the shrimp and marinade all at once, stirring constantly. Cook for 4 minutes or until the shrimp is pink and the bits of garlic are golden brown.
  3. Remove shrimp from the pan and stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. (The sauce should have a thick consistency.).
  4. Spoon the sauce over the shrimp. Serve over pasta or rice or with warm crusty bread.

Excellent tasty Wow recipe - I used a Porter beer, the full amount of garlic - large cloves and did add 1/2 tsp hot chili pepper flakes as well as the hot sauce. This is a keeper. Hot or cold they are Mmm Thanks Little Susie for posting
