Corona Jalapeno Shrimp

These shrimp are light and fresh, but they have a zesty kick. They’re perfect for your beach party BBQ or just a night out in the backyard.

They’re marinated in Corona and fresh jalapeno, but I also added buttermilk to mellow out the bite, so they’re not super spicy.  You could also try Bud Light with Lime or Michelob Ultra Lime Cactus instead of Corona.

A fresh jalapeno ring around the outside gives them added color and a pop of flavor.

Corona Jalapeno Shrimp


  • 8 fresh jalapenos
  • 2 bottles Corona
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 lbs. shrimp
  • lime juice


Mince two jalapenos and combine with corona, buttermilk and salt.

Slice the remaining 4 jalapenos and core out the seeds and membranes. Slip a shrimp through a jalapeno slice and skewer (optional).

Place the shrimp in a 13 x 9 pan.

Pour the marinade on top, and let the shrimp soak in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

Heat the grill on high, remove the shrimp from the Corona and grill 2-3 minutes per side, or until pink.

Drizzle with fresh lime juice and sprinkle with a pinch of salt.

      You could use any light beer. If you prefer not to use alcohol, try ginger ale, Squirt or Fresca.
