¼ cup beer

Coarsely chop shrimp and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, cracked black pepper, granulated garlic, eggs and beer. Beat until smooth. Stir in shrimp, onions, jalapenos, green onions, corn, parsley, garlic and thyme. Cover and chill 2 hours. In a home-style deep fryer, such as a FryDaddy, heat oil according to manufacturer's directions. If a deep fryer is not available, pour 5 inches of vegetable oil into a Dutch oven and heat to 375°F. Drop batter by rounded tablespoons. Fry, a few at a time, 3-5 minutes or until golden brown. Drain fritters on paper towels. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
