  • Preparation Time: 8 hours
  • Cook time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings


  • 2 lbs raw Shrimp, peeled
  • 1 1/2 cup Beer
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsp Chives, snipped
  • 2 Tbsp Parsley, snipped
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 2 Green Onions, finely chopped


Combine all ingredients except lettuce and green onions in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight; stir occasionally.

Drain and reserve marinade.

Broil shrimp 4 inches from heat until cooked and tender, about 2 minutes on each side, fewer minutes for smaller shrimp. Do not overcook or shrimp will become tough. Brush occasionally with marinade. Serve shrimp on shredded lettuce and sprinkle with chopped green onion. Marinade may be heated and served as a dipping sauce.
