DIRECTIONS

  • Fill a large pot with about 2 qts. water.
  • Crack open the beer and pour it in the pot.
  • Add salt and squeeze in lemon juice; toss the halves in, too.
  • Add herbs, garlic and Old Bay.
  • Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and simmer for 5 minutes to infuse the water with the aromatics.
  • Now reduce heat to medium-low and put shrimp in the mixture.
  • Simmer, uncovered, for 2 to 3 minutes or until shrimp are bright pink.
  • Drain and transfer to a bowl.
  • Chill thoroughly, then peel.
  • Serve with lemon wedges and coctail sauce.
  • NOTE: I used peeled, uncooked shrimp for this and it turned out just fine.
  • Cocktail Sauce:
  • Mix 1/2 cup ketchup, 1/4 cup grated fresh or prepared horseradish, 1 teaspoon minced garlic and a few drops of hot pepper sauce.
