Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup dark beer (a stout or porter are best)
  • 1/4 cup cup honey
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 large jalapeño , sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 pound raw shrimp , shell and vein removed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ancho chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice (or juice of 1/2 a lime)
  • salt and pepper , to taste

For serving

  • corn tortillas
  • cilantro

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, combine shrimp, salt, ancho chili powder, olive oil and lime juice. Toss together to coat and set aside.
  • In a medium pot over high heat, add the beer, honey, balsamic vinegar, jalapeño slices, garlic powder and smoked paprika. Bring to a boil. Stir occasionally until most of the bubbles are gone and the mixture has thickened and turned glossy. This should take about ten minutes. Set aside.
