Shrimp Mozambique

Last night we celebrated my daughter's birthday with our family. Each birthday, I have the family over for a meal. Most often, I make a turkey, ham or some type of pasta. This year my sister-in-law recommended I try something with shrimp. So, here again is a shrimp recipe.

I have always loved Shrimp Mozambique in local restaurants but have never tried it at home. I figured I would try it out on my family. I looked at many recipes and also asked for suggestions from my local fish market. I came up with a great recipe that my family really enjoyed. I served it with rice and Portuguese rolls. I hope you enjoy it.

Shrimp Mozambique

4 pounds cleaned and deveined shrimp (I used frozen)
1 onion finely chopped
1 tbs dried parsley
2 packets of Goya Sazon seasoning
1 tsp sea salt
1 head of garlic, peeled and minced
1/4 cup butter
3 tbs olive oil
1 bottle beer

In large skillet, melt butter and add olive oil. Add onion and garlic. Saute for about 5 minutes. Add spices and saute for 1 minute. Add beer and simmer a few minutes. Add shrimp and mix to coat. Cover and simmer until shrimp is pink (about 5 minutes). Mix shrimp while cooking to make sure the sauce coats shrimp. Serve over rice and use bread for dipping into the garlic sauce.

This recipe fed 12 people. I hope you enjoy this. My family loved it!
