Sierra Nevada Kellerweis Shrimp and Scallops with Creamy Coconut Sauce and Papaya Salsa


So I've decided to start posting recipes of things I cook with beer. Or foods I pair with beer. I usually just throw things in as I see fit so the amounts are estimates. I'll try to get better at actually recording things. I'm no professional chef but I don't think you need real training to make tasty food :)

Well, that's my disclaimer and here is my first recipe:

Ingredients:
1/2 pound bay scallops
1/2 pound peeled white shrimp
1 tbsp butter
shallots (or onion)
minced garlic
garlic powder
salt
1 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup Sierra Nevada Kellerweis (or hefeweizen of your choice)

Salsa:
1/2 papaya
1/2 mango
1/4 red bell pepper
1/4 of a red onion
cilantro
1 tbsp lime juice

Serves 2. Melt butter on a pan and add shallots and minced garlic. Saute shrimp and scallops for a few minutes and add coconut milk and beer, cooking until creamy. Season with garlic powder and salt.

For the salsa, chop the papaya, mango, red bell pepper, and onion. Combine with chopped cilantro and lemon juice. Serve with sour dough bread and a beer ^_^
