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.
