Makes: 36 to 40 pieces
Cooking Time:12 min
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled, with tails left on, deveined and rinsed (see Note)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3/4 cup light beer
1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
2.In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and cayenne pepper. Pour beer into flour mixture and whisk until combined.
3.Holding the shrimp by the tail, dip them into the batter, completely coating each shrimp. Place shrimp about 4 inches apart on prepared baking sheet. (Use additional baking sheets, if needed.) Batter will puddle around each shrimp.
4.Bake 12 to 14 minutes, or until coating is golden and bread-like.
Note: The seafood department at your supermarket will usually have cleaned and peeled shrimp available, or they'll do it for you. It sure is easier than doing it yourself!
