Tequila Shrimp Recipe


Outdoor or indoor grilling... these are super in flavor!

Great for a crowd!

Tequila Lime Shrimp

2 tablespoons Tequila
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
pinch cayenne pepper
salt pepper to taste
1/4 cup olive oil
1 pound extra large shrimp peeled deveined with tails on for presentation
wooden skewers soaked in a few tablespoons more of Tequila and the rest water for 1/2 hour
one large zip lock bag
Extra fresh limes for serving and garnish

Whisk all ingredients together. Pour this in a large Ziploc bag with shrimp for 1-2 hours (remembering citrus will cook the shrimp if it's marinaded too long) .  Drain. Thread each shrimp on soaked wooden skewers. Spray grill grates lightly with cooking oil. Heat grill. Place shrimp on the grill. Cook shrimp until it turns pink. Takes around 5 minutes total. Serve with slices or wedges of lime.
