Low carb recipe for Spicy Shrimp in Beer and Butter which belongs to the Fish and Seafood recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 24 ounces (680 g) jumbo shrimp, shelled (21/25 count)
  2. 6 tablespoons (84 g) butter
  3. teaspoon salt
  4. 1 teaspoons cayenne
  5. teaspoon dried thyme
  6. teaspoon dried ground rosemary
  7. teaspoon dried oregano
  8. 6 cloves garlic, crushed
  9. 1 tablespoon (15 ml) Worcestershire sauce
  10. cup (180 ml) light beer (I use Miller Lite or Milwaukee's Best Light.)

Cooking Instructions

In a big, heavy skillet over very low heat, start melting the butter.

As it melts, stir in the salt and the next 6 ingredients (through Worcestershire sauce).

When the butter is all melted, add the shrimp?I like to use good, big ones about an ounce (28 g) apiece.

Let the shrimp saute 2 to 3 minutes per side, letting them get acquainted with the seasoned butter.

Now pour the light beer into the skillet.

Cover the skillet and let the shrimp cook for 2 to 3 minutes.

Uncover and let them cook for another 2 minutes or so.

Remove the shrimp to serving plates and turn up the heat under the skillet.

Let the sauce boil hard until it's reduced by about half and then pour over the shrimp.
