I've mentioned many time that my husband does not like soup. He also doesn't really like shrimp, but like soup, I made beer battered shrimp anyway. I don't fry very much and I'm not sure that I've ever battered anything, but it was really easy. I used the recipe from The Joy of Cooking, and I fried the shrimp in my electric skillet for a few minutes on each side. They were served with some lemon squeezed over the top. My husband actually requested them again, so I guess they were a hit. Now, I'll keep working on a soup he likes.
