Shrimp is the perfect beer snack for a large and small company that loves seafood. But not everyone has yet learned how to properly prepare shrimps for beer at home. These are the people who will be interested in this article. We will talk about different recipes for cooking crustaceans. You will learn how to cook, stew and fry shrimps so that they have an amazing taste and go well with beer.

At the first stage, it is very important to choose the right shrimp in the store. For beer, I recommend taking those crustaceans, on the label of which there is an inscription “70/90” or “90/120”. These are medium-sized shrimps that are well cooked and do not become “rubbery”, so they are ideal as a snack. Large shrimps are better grilled, as they are not so delicious when cooked.

To feel the fullness of taste, before cooking, the shrimp should be thawed. You can defrost in warm water or a microwave oven, there is no fundamental difference. It should also be remembered that Russian stores sell shrimps that have already undergone a certain heat treatment and do not need long cooking.
