One of my favorite things to order and I look forward to it every time I go to a Mexican Restraunt is Super Micheladas! I love the grilled/seared shrimp-rimmed goblets to go with the ice-cold refreshing beer. I love it so much that I decided to get special schooner-style goblets to make my own Micheladas at home!
The plump and succulent seared shrimp were the perfect spicy and perfectly seasoned addition to the drink and will be a hit at your next fiesta!
If you don’t care for shrimp, leave it out and still enjoy yourself some delicious Micheladas!!!
8-10 Large Shell-On Shrimp, deveined
1 tablespoon cooking oil
Mexican seasoning or your favorite seasoning
Super Michelada Ingredients: (Makes 2)
24 ounces Mexican beer, preferably Modelo Negra
8 ounces Clamato
4 small Mexican limes or 2 regular limes, halved and juiced
1 shot of tequila
Few dashes of Worcestershire sauce
Few dashes of Maggi seasoning
Few dashes of hot sauce
Tajin Classic Seasoning
Sliced Cucumbers (for garnish)
Sear Shrimp – Lightly coat shrimp with oil and season both sides with Mexican seasoning. Heat skillet on medium-high. Add 2 tablespoons of oil. Add shrimp in a single layer clockwise and fry shrimp for about 1-2 minutes on each side. Set aside
Make Michelada – In a 16-20 ounce cup, use a halved lime to moisten the rim with lime juice and cover the rim with Tajin. Add ice. Pour Clamato and beer into the cup and mix. Add squirts of Worcestershire sauce, Maggi seasoning, hot sauce, and a few sprinkles of Tajin and mix again. Taste and add more lime juice to taste. Garnish with seared shrimp and thick-sliced cucumbers and serve cold.
- Clamato to Beer Ratio is 1:3, but mix it up however you like!
- If Maggi seasoning is unavailable, use soy sauce.
- If Mexican limes are unavailable, use 1 medium lime.
- Any Mexican hot sauce works for this recipe.
- If using just Salt & Pepper for shrimp seasoning, add chili powder or paprika for some color!
- For a non-alcoholic Michelada, substitute lemon lime sparkling water for beer and adjust seasonings to taste!
