Spicy Fried Shrimps & Beer Sauce

With summer just around the corner, nice outdoor meals with friends and family are a regular and I love surprising them with the nicest treats. This is my usual super delicious flawless go-to for a small group of people. If you're looking to kick up your seafood spread with a fiery flair this is the right recipe for you. You can serve this as an appetizer or have this for dinner over with a crusty whole wheat baguette. And the best part about this dish – it's  very easy, it's ready in under 15 minutes and it's great for weeknights as well. This coming Friday it will be at my dinner table. Would you like to join me?
