Instructions
  1. Combine the marinade ingredients in a large Ziploc bag. Add the shrimp and toss gently to coat. Let sit for 30 minutes.
  2. If using wooden skewers, it's a good idea to soak them in water (or lime water for added flavor) for 30 minutes to reduce burning/splintering.
  3. Thread the shrimp onto your skewers.
  4. Preheat BBQ/grill to high. Reduce heat to medium-high, and grill the shrimp for about 4 minutes/side, or until they're pink and gently firm, taking care not to overcook.
  5. Serve with warm, fresh tortillas, salsa and guacamole. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and a squeeze of lime.

Tequila Lime Grilled Shrimp

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds large shrimp, unpeeled
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup tequila
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 medium shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Lime slices
  • 1 bunch watercress

Instructions

  1. 1. If using bamboo skewers, soak them in cold water for at least 1 hour. This will prevent them from burning when grilled.

    2. Thread the shrimp on the skewers (3 to 4 to each skewer). Lay in a shallow, non-aluminum dish, large enough to hold the skewered shrimp.

    3. To prepare the marinade: Whisk together the limejuice, tequila, garlic, shallots, cumin, salt, and pepper. Slowly add the olive oil, whisking until combined. Taste for seasoning.

    4. Pour over the shrimp and marinate for at least ½ and up to 4 hours.

    5. Prepare the barbecue for medium-heat grilling.

    6. Grill the shrimp on each side for about 4 minutes or to desired doneness. Remove from the grill and take the shrimp off the skewers. Garnish with the fresh watercress and lime slices. Serve with the salsa immediately.

    Cook's Notes:
    This may be prepared 4 hours in advance through step 4 and refrigerated.
