Ingredients

  • 2 lb. Jumbo Shrimp, cleaned and deveined
  • 5 tbsp. Butter
  • 1 c. Tomatoes, diced (I used fire roasted)
  • 2 tbsp. Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. Dried Oregano
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1/2 c. Beer
  • 1 lb. Pasta (I used Angel Hair)
  • Kosher Salt, to taste
  • Crushed Red Pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Clean and devein the shrimp; then set aside. (You can do this the night before if you'd like and keep refrigerated until ready to cook.)
  • Cook your pasta by filling a large pot with water and allowing it to come to a boil before adding the pasta. Cook until al dente; then drain.
  • While the pasta is cooking, melt the butter in a large skillet over high heat; then add the tomatoes, garlic, Cajun seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, oregano and shrimp. 
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes until the shrimp is pink and no longer opaque; then add the beer, cover with a lid and cook for another minute. Remove from the heat, add the cooked pasta and toss together. Season with salt and red pepper to your liking.
