Baked Beer Battered Bang Bang Shrimp

How is that for some alliteration?! Just like everyone else, I get some crazy cravings. Sometimes these cravings are out of control. Pretty much, all at the same time, I wanted bang bang shrimp that was beer battered. I didn’t want to fry anything because, let’s be honest, that can be a serious pain (the oil…the heating of the oil…the cleaning of the oil…etc). This recipe was a real winner. We ended up making a taco out of them, but they can be eaten any which way. They are incredibly easy to make and a great snacking food. I think this makes them a great candidate for game day. Oh, and hooray! We finally decided to cook with some beer! This has been requested quite a few times here lately, and I may be taking the easy way out by beer battering shrimp. Baby steps. Baby steps. I don’t trust myself cooking with beer as much as I trust myself pairing with beer. =)








Beer Love:

Beer: Flying Dog/Evolution’s Natural Selection Ale Genus 3
Brewed By: Flying Dog and Evolution Craft Brewing
Style: Old Ale
ABV: 7.6%
IBU: 35
Description: This spectacular dry-hopped old ale is the 3rd in a series of 3 releases from this collaboration. This old ale is one of the best I’ve had, and I wanted a food pairing that did it justice. It has fruity and caramel(y) notes, but is subtle enough to not be overpowering. It’s roastiness really compliments these shrimp. This brew is a must-try, so pick up a bottle while you still can!
