Dirty Shrimp

I made this last night and served with my special high fiber pasta. It was quite spicy and very good. This is going into the line up.

Dirty Shrimp

  • 1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 pound butter or margarine (one stick)
  • 2 pounds raw medium shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 1/2 cup beer, optional
Combine seasonings in a small bowl. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat and add seasonings. Cook for 1 minute. Add minced garlic and shrimp and cook 2 to 4 minutes, stirring constantly, until shrimp turn pink.
If serving as an appetizer, serve immediately in a chafing dish with toothpicks. If serving as an entree, add beer and simmer 1 minute. Serve over rice with French Bread on the side to dip into the sauce.
