Dirty Shrimp in Beer Sauce

Original Recipe:

This is my very first shrimp recipe! Shrimp is very healthy for you, but I generally only like it deep fried. Now i'm branching out and trying to find delicious shrimp recipes. Found this one while browsing "Superbowl recipes" and decided to give it a try! The original recipe called for butter, but I used olive oil because it's healthier for you. 1/4 C of oil, in my opinion was too much, so I'm going to cut it down to about 2 T and post results here at a later time. If you don't like things spicy, then leave out the crushed red pepper flakes and the cayenne pepper.

2 lbs Shrimp (I liked the already cooked kind because I don't know how to cook it just yet)
1/4 C Olive Oil
2 t Minced Garlic
1 t Oregano
1 t Basil
1 t Thyme
1/2 t Cayenne Pepper
1/2 t Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1/2 t Salt
1/2 t Black Pepper
1/2 C Beer
Hot cooked pasta or Rice
2 C Frozen Veggies like Broccoli

Start pasta or rice cooking. Meanwhile combine olive oil, garlic, spices, and herbs in a pan. Saute on low heat until fragrant. Add frozen veggies, shrimp, and beer. Cover and simmer until warmed through and shrimp are done. Server over pasta or rice.
