    1) In a large skillet over medium heat, add 2 Tbsp of butter along with the garlic and cook over medium heat until the garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute.

    2) Add the shrimp and creole seasoning and saute until the shrimp is about fully cooked through on both sides, remove to a plate and set aside.

    3) In the same skillet, add the beer, hot sauce, lemon juice, clam juice or fish stock and smoked paprika, bring to a simmer and cook until the mixture reduces by half, about 5 minutes or so.

    4) Add the shrimp back in along with the remaining butter and cook just long enough for the butter to melt, remove from the heat to a serving dish and sprinkle over the parsley and scallions.

    5) Serve with hunks of french baguette and enjoy!
