Ingredients
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 lb raw shrimp cleaned and shelled
  • 3 cloves garlic peeled and sliced
  • 4 springs fresh thyme or 1/2 tsp dried thyme leaves
  • 3 sprigs fresh rosemary or 1/2 tsp dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 dried chili pepper whole
  • 1/2 cup beer
  • 1/2 tsp smokey Spanish paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper ground
Servings: people
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil and butter in a shallow skillet. Add the garlic, fresh thyme, rosemary springs and the chili pepper, stir and saute until the garlic becomes tender.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients except the shrimp and mix well into the oil and butter mixture. Add the shrimp and simmer until the shrimp are pink, about 3 minutes.
  3. Remove the sprigs of fresh herbs and toss with cooked linguine noodles, sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

Rather than tossing with linguine noodles, another possibility would be to serve this dish as an appetizer with a crusty, rustic bread for dipping into the rich broth, topped with a spicy shrimp.  Deliciously naughty and hazardous to the waistline!

Bon Appetit!
