I’m cheating a little today. This recipe is somewhat of a repost. I know there are a lot of folks coming around that are seeking Irish recipes for the month and I wanted to bring this one forward.
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.
So, I am sharing it again today with a some photos that were not shared before.
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.
Guinness Grilled Shrimp and Rice
- 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.

Oh yum… I love shrimp and Guinness as well! I wish my husband did (We sound like we’re in the same boat, kind of like the tilapia recipe I posted). Oh, well… more for me 😉
That’s how I feel! More for me!! When I make shrimp, the husband usually gets steak. I am not a big steak eater, so its a fair trade for me. Give me seafood any time.
Anything cooked in Guinness is YUM! These shrimp look really good. I could also see them tossed in pasta with a little garlic butter and reduced Guinness.
I agree! And that sounds super yummy.
Just mouthwatering…looks delicious!
Thanks so much!
