Nothing says Super Bowl like beer, getting your dip on, and eating with your hands! These sassy, savory New Orleans style barbecue shrimp check all those boxes while making your taste buds do the end zone dance. Sizzling aromatics doused in your favorite beer, with the rich nuance of Worcestershire, pop of your hot sauce of choice, and brightness of charred lemon all tied together with a luxurious swirl of butter, you will keep going back for more. You can prepare everything in your cast iron skillet, but grilling the shrimp separately adds another layer of flavor and texture while also bringing this dish together faster than a Super Bowl commercial. Pour a cold cerveza, get out the pile of napkins, and make sure you have plenty of crusty French bread to sop up all of the flavorful broth.Ingredients:
