The Guinness Grilled Shrimp was an entry into a contest called “Get Your Chef On” and for me it was a lot of fun to make….and to eat.
You can pair the shrimp with rice. In these photos we used Jasmine. I find Jasmine rice to have a bit better flavor than regular white rice. It is still to ‘white’ for me and I prefer to stick to brown rice when I can. Somehow brown rice just didn’t seem right with this recipe because I am pretty sure my Irish ancestors weren’t eating brown rice.
Shrimp pairs perfectly with steak. In this case we tossed some Guinness into my Skillet Steak.
- 12 oz extra-large peel and eat shrimp
- 6 oz Guinness + 1 splash (about an oz.)
- ½ TBSP raw minced garlic
- Mix beer and garlic in a bowl with matching lid.
- Add shrimp.
- Put lid on bowl and shake well.
- In a cast iron skillet warm a little bit of olive oil and a splash of Guinness.
- Remove lid from bowl and add shrimp to skillet along with a little bit of the Guinness and garlic mixture.
- Cook your shrimp on medium low heat until most of the liquid has evaporated.
- Turn skillet to medium high and cook shrimp just long enough to have that ‘fry’ coating.
- Serve with your choice of sides.
