Grilled Tequila Lime Shrimp

This was a delicious meal that took minutes to prepare. The most time consuming part was peeling and deveining the shrimp. To make this a 15 minute meal, get shrimp thats already peeled. This was really good. We all ate it up. Even Sam ate a whole skewer of shrimp. I also have to thank my wonderful husband for grilling the shrimp and corn for me.

Tequila Lime Shrimp

1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
3 Tbsp Olive oil
3 Tbsp Tequila
1 Tbsp Franks Red Hot sauce
a couple splashes of Cholula hot sauce
zest of 1/2 lime
2 cloves of garlic, pressed
salt and pepper
Juice of 2 limes

In a small bowl, mix all ingredients except the lime juice. Put into a plastic bag and let marinate in the fridge for 1 hr. After the shrimp has marinated, add the lime juice and mix to coat evenly. Skewer the shrimp and grill for 2-3 minutes per side. We served this up with some Jasmine rice and grilled corn on the cob.
