CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 5
  • Servings: 12-15
  • Preparation Time: 10
  • 2 lbs peeled and deveined shrimp around 30 count per pound
  • 2 beers - I use bud light
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 1 package shrimp boil - would rather use old bay, but have the hardest time finding it around here
  • 1 c mayo
  • 2 T Chapala hot sauce
  • salt to taste
DIRECTIONS
  1. bring beer and shrimp boil to simmer, add shrimp.
  2. watch shrimp carefully, until just cooked - they will turn white and curl
  3. remove from heat, and pour off into colander, they will continue to cook a little, but you want them to stay nice and plump with just a hint of "crunch"
  4. Mix mayo, hot sauce, and salt to taste, put in small dish.
  5. Arrange shrimp around dip, and dig in!
RECIPE BACKSTORY
my cousin always makes this when we have family get togethers, and I have been trying to figure out the dip for years - I finally think I cracked the code, or at the very least, I now have my own version that I love!
