    How can something so easy taste so good. But it does. I have made this recipe 4 times now, and the 5th time is coming up soon. Ohhh, I do love my shrimp. lol

    Beer-Boiled Shrimp
    serves 6

    1 lb. butter
    1 large onion, chopped
    1 TB salt
    5 lbs. large shrimp in shell (21 to 25 per lb.), peeled and deveined
    3 (12 fluid oz.) bottles beer

    Melt the butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the onions, and cook until transparent, about 5 minutes. Mix in the salt and shrimp. Pour the beer over the shrimp, and simmer just until the shrimp turn pink. Turn off the heat, and allow the shrimp to sit at least 1/2 hour. Serve while still warm, or refrigerate and reheat before serving.

    What a lovely easy recipe! It reminds me of cooking mussels in beer. I'd never thought to cook shrimp (prawns in UK) this way. I'll certainly try this.

    Hi, I hope you do and if you do, hope you like it. It has become my favorite way to cook shrimp. I usually use whatever beer is on hand, but I don't like the taste if it is too dark beer.

    Sorry Shermie, no can do. Just use your imagination. Shrimp, covered in chopped up onions. lol But, thanks for asking.

    Don't let the lack of a picture keep you from trying it. It is really good, and you can add whatever you want to suit your tastebuds.
