Beer Steamed Shrimp with Spicy Cocktail Sauce
Author: Becki and Jim Jacobs
Jim usually steams the shrimp while I whip up the cocktail sauce. We enjoyed this during an afternoon of football!
  • 1 bottle of beer (we used Sam Adams Oktoberfest)
  • 1 lb deveined shrimp
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 2-3 Bay Leaves
  • 1 cup Ketchup
  • 3 Tablespoons Horseradish
  • 1Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • Salt to taste
  1. Put Beer and Bay Leaves in the bottom of a pot that has a steamer basket. If you don't have a pot with a steamer basket you can also boil the shrimp right in the beer. Bring to a good simmer.
  2. Sprinkle Old Bay over shrimp and add to the steamer basket or into the simmering beer mixture.
  3. Steam or boil shrimp until they turn pink and become firm. Probably about 6 minutes.
  4. For the Cocktail sauce, combine all ingredients from Ketchup to the Old Bay Seasoning. Combine and enjoy!
