  • 31-40 count bag of Medium or Large Shrimp
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 4 packs Sazon Goya Spice little orange box found in ethnic food section
  • 8 oz white wine or beer
  • fresh parsley optional
  • 1 lemon wedge
  • 2 tablespoons hot pepper sauce


  • 1 1/2 cups rice or french fries


  • Pat-dry your shrimp to remove excess moisture.
  • In a large stock pan place melt butter over medium-low heat.
  • Once the butter is melted place the chopped garlic in to saute until fragrant and lightly golden brown.
  • Place the shrimp in the pan with the sauteed garlic, and then add the 8oz of beer, the Goya seasoning, lemon juice, pepper sauce, and parsley. Lower heat to low, and simmer for 15 minutes. Shrimp will be translucent and curl up a bit.
  • This shrimp tastes better the longer it marinades, but you do not want to overcook it. To reheat, simply microwave, or simmer until it starts to boil.
