The Beer Fox says, “Hearty, ‘hottie’ shrimp served over lightly herbed linguine is reminiscent of a steamboat trip down the ole’ Mississippi.”
Recommended Brew: Full Sail Amber - Full Sail Brewing Co., Hood River, Oregon USA
Style: American Amber / Red Ale – Sparkling amber hue – Enticing balance of select malts and hops give this ale a sweet malt flavor with a full-bodied, spicy hop finish.
1-1/2 lb. fresh shrimp, cooked, peeled and de-veined
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons pesto seasoning
2 tablespoons Captain Redbeard’s blackening seasoning
8 oz. Full Sail Amber
6 oz. tomato paste
Captain Redbeard’s Hot Sauce
1 pkg. Linguine
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 teaspoon dried basil
In large skillet, sauté garlic in butter for 1 minute. Add tomato paste and Full Sail Amber. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add pesto seasoning, blackening seasoning, and a dash of hot sauce, to taste. Cook for 10 minutes. Add shrimp. Heat through.
In the meantime, prepare linguine according to package directions. Drain and lightly toss with olive oil, fresh parsley, and dried basil.
To serve, arrange Good Time Louie’s Steamboat Shrimp over herbed linguine. Serve with a side salad, dressed with lemon peppercorn dressing. Add French bread - either a bouleau loaf, split loaf, crown, or Vienna loaf - for a magical, gourmet touch.
