  • 1 12-ounce bottle Lager Beer
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced


  • 1 12-ounce bottle Lager Beer (or Wheat Beer)

    In large bowl, prepare marinade by whisking Lager Beer, honey, ginger and minced garlic. Add shrimp. Marinate at room temperature while making glaze.

    Prepare glaze by combining in 3 quart saucepan the Lager Beer, oyster sauce, honey, chili sauce, ground ginger, chopped garlic, sesame oil and soy sauce. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil 35 minutes until reduced and thickened to a glaze that will coat the back of a spoon. Stir in butter; melt. Let glaze cool.

    Drain shrimp and discard marinade. Pat shrimp dry. On work surface, line up 6 shrimp with curved-sides touching. Insert wooden skewer through shrimp to thread. Repeat with remaining shrimp and skewers. Brush shrimp generously with glaze. Place shrimp on grill or under broiler; cook 2 minutes on each side until cooked through.

    Serves 4.
