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
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.
