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.
