Beer Shrimp

This spicy beer shrimp recipe is perfect for holiday parties and get-togethers, so I thought I’d share it with you now.

Beer and shrimp go together like peanut butter and jelly. It’s a must-try if you’ve never had beer-cooked shrimp because it’s so delicious and ideal for dinner parties with friends, game day, and a weekend supper.

How to Cook Shrimp in Beer?

Using beer to fry prawns is a cinch. Adding a little beer flavor to the shrimp can make the dish more flavorful.

Adding some homemade dry rub spices to the shrimp will result in one of the best shrimp dishes ever!

What Beer Should I Use?

You are free to use any type of beer that you choose. Singha Beer has moderate flavors that I enjoy.

The shrimp and spices go well with the sauce’s sweet and bitter flavors. Steaming clams and mussels in beer broth is another favorite of mine.

Can I Use Old Bay Seasonings?

This homemade dry rub is the most delicate spice seasoning ever and can be used on everything from shrimp to baked pork chops to poultry. My pal Harry Soo from Slap Yo Daddy, one of the best BBQ pitmasters in the United States, gave me the recipe.

However, Old Bay Seasonings can season the shrimp, but they are incredibly salty. In this case, you’ll want to use a little less than the amount specified in my recipe.

With this recipe, what are its complementary dishes?

Bread, spaghetti, or rice are all good accompaniments to beer shrimp. The following recipes are suitable for game day, entertaining, parties, or dinner, and they’re all easy to make.

  • Parmesan Garlic Bread
  • Easy Spaghetti
  • Cheesy Garlic Bread
  • Cilantro Lime Rice


  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons homemade dry rub (or 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb. peeled and deveined shrimp, tail-on preferred
  • 1 cup beer


  1. Rinse the shrimp under cold running water to remove any remaining dirt. After patting the skin dry with paper towels, use a DIY dry rub to season. Remove from consideration.
  2. Add the olive oil to a wok and bring it to a boil. Add the tomatoes and shrimp after the garlic has been cooked until fragrant but not browned. Make sure everything is thoroughly combined by giving it a good stir. Add the beer as soon as the shrimp’s color becomes opaque.
  3. After the beer has risen to a vigorous boil, and the shrimp is cooked, remove the wok from heat and toss the parsley. Serve immediately after mixing thoroughly.


  • Please give the homemade dry rub a chance. Create a big batch and keep it in a spice jar for various proteins.
