Pairing Beer With Food Series

This recipe was inspired from the Great Food, Great Beer cookbook.  Their recipe can be found on page 194 and has shrimp paired with an American lager.  This recipe I found on and it uses a light beer recipe which can be found here.

can of light beer
4 teaspoons of Old Bay
4 tablepoons of Butter
Shrimp - peeled, devined, about 1/2 pound (apx 10 medium sized shrimp) Parsley (Fresh flat leaf if possible)
1 small baguette, or 1 or 2 small crusty dinner rolls
Fresh parsley, mineced
Saute Bitter, garlic and olive oil in a pan, Season shrimp with salt, pepper and Old Bay and add to hot pan. Add beer to pan, enough so that foam covers the shrimp and add more old bay. Braze for 3-5 minutes, or until the shrimp turn pinkish white. Slice bread and put in a bowl. Add shrimp and sauce over the bread. Top with fresh parsley as garnish and extra flavor.
