Seafood is known to cook fast and it's one of the best things about it! Since we live in a country with plentiful seafood dishes can be a lifesaver when you're in a rush and need to put something on the table in a jiffy. 

Even if all the time you have is just enough to boil water, you can cook any of these dishes. That's because the most that these dishes need is a little boiling in seasoned water, and it's ready to eat:

6 Beer-Boiled Shrimp Recipe 

It may sound odd but you should try beer and shrimp together. The bitterness of the beer is a great complement to the fresh sweetness of the shrimp. If butter and shrimp have always been your go-to combo, a taste of this may make you rethink that.
