In today’s recipe we are making Golden Monkey beer and cane syrup glazed Mayport shrimp. The original version of this recipe was in Chile Pepper Magazine and used Abita Amber beer. We’ve made a few changes to the original recipe and used Slap Ya’ Mama Hot Cajun Seasoning to give this a bit of a kick. Also, we changed up the beer by swapping out the Abita with a Belgian Tripel from Victory – the infamous Golden Monkey. WARNING: Use caution when sipping on the Monkey….with 9.5% ABV it packs a punch!
