Old Bay and Beer Shrimp

Old bay and beer shrimp

Oh Hi.

It’s been a while. Sorry about that.

Can I have your forgiveness by swaying you with some tasty shrimp.

They are super duper easy too.

So are we good?

I have been making my party shrimp this way for as long as I can remember. They are always the first to disappear.

You can use fresh shrimp and peel and devein them or you can use frozen pre-cooked peeled and deveined shrimp for ease.

I personally like using the frozen pre-cooked shrimp, because if I am having a party, the last thing I want to do is go to the grocery store the morning of my party for fresh shrimp.

Soooo, the night before, I make the marinade (takes like 5 minutes) and pop it in the fridge until I am ready to use it.

I thaw out the shrimp, put them in a gallon freezer bag and pour the marinade over the little crustaceans.

Put the shrimp in the fridge for 1 hour flipping once.

Drain the shrimp(do not rinse) and serve with cocktail sauce or just by themselves!
