1. Steam the shrimp.

2. Add lemon, onion, garlic and chopped cilantro into a bowl with steamed shrimp.

3. Stir in diced tomatoes and hot sauce.

Molten Michelada

2. Squeeze juice from remaining lime and add to mug along with soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and Bigfat’s 108 hot sauce.

3. Fill mug with beer and stir just enough to combine well and enjoy. Makes 1 serving.

Note: For a "Poor man's michelada" just add a dash or two of Bigfat's 1o8 Habanero hot Sauce in your beer, mix and enjoy.
