Margarita Grilled shrimp
I got this recipe off of www.allrecipes.com, and it's so amazing, I had to share!
This makes 4 servings, but Pete and I were able to share together with a side salad.
1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined (I bought the frozen kind and thawed them first)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons tequila
3 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 20 minutes
Combine the shrimp, garlic, lime juice, olive oil, tequila, cilantro, red pepper, and salt in a bowl; toss to combine; refrigerate 30 minutes.
Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate. Drain the marinade from the shrimp and discard; thread the shrimp on the skewers.
Cook on preheated grill until the shrimp turn pink, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
