Beer marinated shrimp is a great choice to do-ahead and cook at the last minute. Whether you choose to use your broiler or to grill, you can enjoy this delicious shrimp recipe any time of year.

2 pounds shrimp
1 tablespoon fresh chives
1 tablespoon fresh parsley
2 teaspoons fresh basil
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon celery seed
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
2 teaspoons dry mustard
2 bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper, freshly cracked and ground
1 12-ounce bottle of beer

Shell and devein the shrimp if needed. Rinse and finely chop the chives, parsley and basil. Peel and mince the garlic. Lightly grind the celery seeds to release their flavor.

Combine and place the prepared vegetables and dry seasonings in a bowl large enough to accommodate the shrimp. Add the shrimp; pour the beer over the top. Turn the shrimp several times to thoroughly mix the marinade and distribute seasonings. Cover and refrigerate the bowl. Allow the shrimp to marinate the shrimp for a minimum of 8 hours or overnight, turning the shrimp a couple of times while it marinates.

Remove the shrimp from the marinade and place on skewers or arrange on a pan.

To oven broil:
Fire up the broiler. When the oven is hot, place the pan of shrimp 3 inches from the heat source and broil for approximately 5 minutes, watching carefully.

To grill:
Lay the skewered shrimp on the grill rack 3 – 5 inches over white-hot coals. Cook for 3 – 5 minutes, watching carefully.

Tip:
When cooking with beer, you’re well advised to avoid ale. Ale becomes bitter when heated.

Yield: 4 – 6 servings.
