Spicy Beer Prawns
Some weeks ago I made beer bread and had a can of beer sitting around. For some reason, I wanted to do something with beer but not beer bread again. I had a few prawns so Beer prawns it was with a little a bit of this and a bit of that. Feel free to adjust the spice quotient.

Dry the prawns with paper towels and season with dry rub. Set aside.
Heat up a pan on high heat, add the olive oil. Sauté the garlic until aromatic. Do not burn. Add onion, fry till translucent. Add tomato and shrimp. Stir to combine well. As soon as the color of the shrimp turns opaque, add the beer. Taste and adjust seasoning.
