"After trying several of the marinated shrimp recipes, my husband said, 'I love the way you've always made them why would you try anything else?' I thought it was too simple, but I thought I'd share my recipe."

  1. Whisk the beer and garlic together in a bowl, toss in the shrimp, then pour everything into a resealable plastic bag. Squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Place the bag into a bowl to catch any leaks, then marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  2. Heat a cast iron grill pan over medium-high heat until it begins to smoke. Remove the shrimp from the marinade, and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. Cook the shrimp until the shells turn pink and they are no longer translucent in the center, about 5 minutes.

After reading the wonderful reviews, I was anxious to try this recipe. I prepared it exactly as described, and marinated it for 3 1/2 hours- ample time for the flavors to delevop, according to ...

Followed exact. Used the outdoor grill. Best grilled shrimp I've ever had. Sometimes less is more. Simple ingredients. You can't go wrong with beer and garlic.

This simple marinade is wonderful...don't need another thing! Skewer together 6 or 8 to add to a steak BBQ. Cooked and peeled shrimp do equally as well, just cook til hot!

SO EASY! Followed the recipe exactly! Just used a regular lite beer and put a heaping tablespoon of jarred garlic and they came out perfect. Squeeze a little lemon on before serving if you like ...

I have to admit I knew I would like this- but I didn't expect to love it as much as I did! Even my husband who doesn't care for shrimp ate two whole skewers of them! So delicious and so simple! ...

These were great and simple. We added a touch of tabasco sauce to the marinade to give it a little kick.

Good flavor, i made one change though and sprinkled some Cajun seasoning on top of them before throwing them on the BBQ. Will cook again!


I made these for my sweet soldier hubby on Memorial Day! What can be better than shrimp and beer?!? They were fantastically simple! They will be a go to grilling recipe for us for years to come!
