Shrimp lend well to marinades it in parts flavor into the otherwise fairly plain tasting shrimp. And one of the easiest ways to impart flavor into seafood is with Old Bay Seasoning it is a quick way to add a familiar taste that has been adding flavor to seafood dishes for a long time. It is a fairly quick and simple recipe I use here but the results are anything but simple.
Now there are different techniques to making beer shrimp many uses a foil pack but I prefer this method as it imparts the grills wonderful smoky flavor into the mix to tie it all together. The marinade is a quick and simple combination and with seafood you do not want to marinate it for long especial if you have citrus in it as the citrus will actual cook the seafood and if you do it to long it will turn the food to mush.
So when we use the marinade in this recipe it is merely to impart some extra flavor and we use the marinade for a reduction sauce. Now if you are a fan of my sauces and marinade site you will know this idea comes with a big word of warning or caution. Whenever using a marinade that has been in contact with raw food you must I say it again must boil it for a minimum of five minutes to kill off any potential bacteria in the marinade that may have contaminated it. As long as you do this the bacteria will all die and you will be left with a perfectly safe to use sauce that goes well with the food as they have the same flavor profile.
