No brainer shrimp… enough said!

Beer-Batter Shrimp


  • 1 (12 ounce) can of beer – We used Heineken;
  • 1 cup flour;
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder;
  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled, veined, tail-on.


  1. Make the batter by mixing the beer, flour and garlic powder and then stirring to a cream consistency;
  2. Heat the oil in frying pan;
  3. Dip shrimp in batter to cover and then deep fry in the hot oil


  • We prefer Heineken as our beer choice as we find we can really taste it in the batter.
  • After frying the shrimp, we place them on paper towels to absorb the excess oil.
