Shrimp HQ

I have two shrimp recipes I am posting here. Both are from the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. cookbook.

Alabama Style shrimp bake:

1 C melted butter

3/4C lemon juice

3/4 C Worcestershire sauce

1 T salt

1 T coarsely ground pepper

1 t dried rosemary

1/8 t ground red pepper

1 T hot sauce

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 1/2 lbs large or jumbo shrimp

2 lemons, thinly sliced

1 medium onion, thinly sliced

Combine first 9 ingredient in a small bowl, set aside.

Rinse shrimp and drain well. Layer shrimp, lemon slices, and onion slices in an ungreased baking dish. Pour butter mixture over shrimp.

Bake, uncovered at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until shrimp turn pink. Baste occasionally with pan juices.


Bubba’s Beer Battered Fried Shrimp

1 lb large fresh shrimp

1/4 C AP flour

1/4 C cornstarch

1/8 t salt

1/4 C beer

2 T butter melted

1 egg yolk

oil for frying…I use peanut oil.

Peel shrimp, leaving tails intact; devein. Combine flour, cornstarch and salt. Add beer, butter, and egg yolk. Stir until smooth.

Pour oil to depth of 2 inches in Dutch oven. Heat to 375°. Dip shrimp into batter; fry a few at a time until golden. Drain on rack or paper towels.


I have had trouble getting the batter to stick to the shrimp.  It’s a mess, and the end product is a blob of fried batter with shrimp inside…it’s still delicious.

Use a darker beer. It will impart more flavor than a domestic light beer.
