Tequila Lime Shrimp

This is a recipe is some of my favorite flavors of the spring and summer.  Over the weekend, I had had more than enough of the cold and gray of winter and I wanted some light flavors.  I also have used this marinade on chicken and it tastes great!

I used about 1 pound of 31-40 raw shrimp

Marinade:

About 1/2 extra virgin olive oil

About 1/4 cup tequila

The juice of 2 limes

2 TBS minced red onion

Handful of fresh cilantro, chopped

1/2 TBS minced garlic

Dash of salt and pepper

Mix all marinade ingredients together in bowl or ziploc bag (I use a bag, so that clean up is simple!) for at least 30 minutes and up to over night.  I put the shrimp on skewers and grilled them for about 5 minutes.  The shrimp are cooked when they turn a nice pink.  You could also saute the shrimp for a few minutes, flipping a few times.
