Spicy Barbecue Beer Shrimp

Spicy Barbecue Beer Shrimp

So my AC is broken. I’m kind of hoping my brother isn’t reading this because he is coming to visit this weekend (YAY!!!) and I still want him to come. Given that it is July in Atlanta, all my walls are floor to ceiling windows, and I have no AC I think it is understandable that I didn’t feel like turning on the oven. But I wanted something yummy!

Spicy Barbecue Beer Shrimp

These Spicy Barbecue Beer Shrimp were the answer to all my problems! This fabulous recipe is from Kristi at Inspiration Kitchen who is one of my favorite people ever. Seriously, ever. It’s like we are sisters separated at birth.

Buuuut Kristi can take the heat and I am a spice weenie, or, as Kristi says, “spice challenged.” The first time I made this recipe I made it as written and I almost passed out from the spice. Like I said, weak. So I toned it down, made it with sweet bbq sauce and sighed in bliss! This is how an appetizer should be! Addicting!

You might be wondering why there are only 9 shrimp in my photos. Did the market run out of shrimp? Is there some sort of National shrimp shortage? Should you be concerned?

Spicy Barbecue Beer Shrimp

No. There is no such crisis.

I ate them.

I was only going to have a few and then, like a good food blogger, I was going to save the majority for my photo shoot the next day. But the next thing I knew, there were only 10 shrimp left!

And, naturally, I had to even it out, so I ate the 10th to make 3 perfect skewers.

You will love these Spicy Barbecue Beer Shrimp because they come together in a flash and you barely even have to turn on your stove! The beer and barbecue sauce come together in a beautiful melody on your tongue.

And then there were 8…

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: Serves 6 - 8

Beer and Barbecue sauce come together in these wonderful Spicy Barbecue Beer Shrimp! So incredibly easy to pull together and flavorful, you will want to serve these shrimp as appetizers at all your parties! They also make a wonderful topping for tacos!

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup barbecue sauce
  • ¼ cup dark beer
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon jalapenos, seeds & white ribs removed
  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled & deveined

Instructions

  1. Mix the first 4 ingredients together in a small bowl or plastic bag.
  2. Add shrimp to BBQ mixture and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Heat a skillet on medium-high heat. Sauté shrimp until opaque and cooked through but not hard. Make sure your sauce comes to a rolling boil - you can continue to cook it down after you remove the shrimp from the pan if you want.
  4. Skewer or serve in a bowl with bread for dipping (or so advises Kristi – she’s so smart!)

Notes:

You can easily adjust this recipe for your desired level of spice by using a sweet or spicy BBQ sauce, keeping the white ribs in the jalapeños or using the full 2 tablespoons of jalapenos that Kristi used.

      I heart you too Kristi (obviously!) I’m trying to get better at eating spicy foods – it’s not that I don’t like them but I just can’t handle a lot of heat. It builds into a sensation that is no longer pleasant and then I can’t taste anything else 🙂 I hear you can build up a tolerance.

      Thanks for the compliments 🙂 I wasn’t pleased when I took them but I think they turned out ok! I definitely used the editing tricks you taught me! I need to learn more! I never know if I am able to accurately convey what is in my head…glad you got it 🙂 That’s 2 people, so yay! {HUGE HUGS!}

      I was thinking that too! Then boil the rest of the sauce for serving! Great plan!

    Oh another spicy lover? I gotta check out that blog! Exactly how much spicy can you handle anyways? Like is kimchi too spicy for you? I heart spicy, but not too too burn your mouth numb spicy. Like, I like sriracha on everything. When I saw this earlier on IG, I was like hmm…that looks so yummy, I wonder if she put sriracha (cuz sriracha makes everything better) in it, then I remembered that you don’t do spicy.

      You should check out Kristi’s site! Kimchi isn’t too spicy but it is definitely the max that I would enjoyably eat. I bet it would be yummy with sriracha sauce…I do have that in my cabinet but I don’t usually use it…I’ll have to give it a try!
