Garlic and Beer Grilled Shrimp

Garlic and beer seem like an odd marinade combination for shrimp but trust me, this is amazing! The beer adds a nice sweetness and the garlic isn’t overwhelming, could you ask for an easier recipe?

Ingredients
2 pounds shrimp (if frozen, thaw the shrimp in a colander and run cold water over it or allow it to thaw in the fridge)Garlic and Beer Grilled Shrimp
4 tablespoons minced garlic
1 bottle of light amber beer
1 tablespoon old bay seasonings
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Directions
Place all of the ingredients in zipalock bag and allow it to marinate for at least 2 hours in the fridge, it can also marinate overnight for an intense flavor.

Remove the shrimp from the marinade and place them on wooden skewers that have been soaked in water.

Grill the shrimp on each side for 3 to 4 minutes (depending on the size.) When the shrimp has changed from translucent to white, it is done. Serve with the light amber beer you used in your marinade and additional wedges of lemon.
