A great Beer BBQ Shrimp recipe that everyone should try

Beer BBQ Shrimp

2 cups Margarine/butter
4 cups Italian Dressing
20 dashes Tabasco (I usually put 25)
Juice from 4 lemons
2 tbsp Cayenne
1 tbsp Basil
2 tbsp Garlic Salt
1 tbsp Paprika
2 tbsp Black Pepper
1 tbsp Tonys Chacheres seasoning (I use HOT Slap ya Mama)
1 miller lite- 12oz
Any size & quantity Shrimp (I prefer heads on and larger size shrimp)

1)Stir mixture well
2)Bring mix to Rolling Boil
3)Depending on size and heat it should take around 1 minute to boil shrimp and then turn off heat and let soak 1-2 minutes
(Can do over stove or outside on burner with Cast Iron Pot)

I usually do a couple batches with this mix and even include some corn at the end.

I mainly use bigger size shrimp that's usually around 13-15 count per pound and put in about 1lb at a time. But I have used smaller shrimp and put in around 2lb per boil. The good thing about this mixture is you can cook several batches of shrimp with it so really no need in doubling recipe.

re: A great Beer BBQ Shrimp recipe that everyone should try
I've used a similar recipe for shrimp before, though I wouldn't call it my BBQ shrimp b/c for that designation, I've used only used a recipe very similar to the Mr. B one someone linked above.

However, I do like to simmer shrimp in a similar sauce/gravy type mix, with a few differences:

1 - NO Italian dressing. I don't hate on dressing as a marinade like some do; however, I don't put it anywhere near seafood.

2 - Louisiana Hot Wing sauce instead of the dashes of Tabasco. Gives a hot sauce kick while also adding the thickening instead of using Italian dressing for such.

3 - Good, healthy beer with some color like Sierra Nevada Torpedo or even Abita Turbo Dog instead of Miller Lite.


I don't know what I would call it, other than marinated/simmered shrimp, but it is tasty.

Ain't nobody going to eat it, but I'll post it any damn way...from the Recipe Thread:


OTIS2’s Take on Prudhomme's BBQ Shrimp

First of all, Paul's recipe in La Kitchen is one of the best .Having said that, I made my own changes. I don't measure much but I wrote this down the other day for a friend who threatened to kill himself if I didn't share the recipe with him.

INGREDIENTS:
2 lbs head on large/jumbo shrimp(9-12 ct)
2 sticks unsalted butter
1/2 cup shrimp stock
1/4 cup good beer
3 T Worcestershire sauce
1 t black pepper
1 t red pepper
1 t crushed red pepper
1/2 t each, dried basil, oregano, thyme and rosemary
3 cloves crushed, fresh garlic
2 green onions, minced
3 T Italian parsley, minced
3 T brown sugar
1 lemon, sliced thin

METHOD:
Melt butter in a sauce pan; add garlic and sauté 1 minute over med. heat. Add all dry seasonings, then stock, beer, and green onions. In a baking dish, place shrimp in one layer if possible. Pour the sauce over the shrimp, top with parsley and lemon slices. Put in a preheated 425 degree oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven, turn the shrimp and place back in oven until the shrimp are fully pink, but do not overcook. Total cooking time will be 10 minutes or less depending on the size of the shrimp. Serve with good bread for dipping in the sauce, of course. Recipe can be multiplied easily.
Tip: Clean the shrimp by pinching the eyes off and removing the whiskers.

Great BBQ shrimp recipes have you melting/incorporating your butter one tablespoon at a time so that it can properly emulsify.

If you're doing a stove top method, that is a good point. If you're baking, that isn't possible.
