"Delicious! I did find I needed longer cooking time for the uncooked shrimp but they were not tough and we loved the spice."
"This recipe is fantastic! It was easy to make once you had everything mise en place. DH & I enjoyed it and would make it again. We used Blue Moon Ale and I subbed Smart Balance margarine for the butter. We had it with a whole grain pilaf instead of grits."
"This recipe was delicious. I used a light beer(that's all I had)... and it worked fine to me. I make it with garlic-parm seasoned grits as suggested!!! Fantastic!!!"
