Big fan of shrimp? I am... and during the summer, nothing is better than to add some skewered shrimp to the bar-b-q at a pool party, or anytime the grill is going. It took a few tries to perfect this recipe, but this one was the crowd pleaser. It definitely has a bit of a sweet taste, but that gets cut slightly with the flavor of the garlic. If you like things a little more spicy, you can also add 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne or chili pepper to the recipe. You can also remove the tequila and replace with 1 tablespoon of white balsamic vinegar or coconut vinegar.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
What a light and fresh grilled shrimp recipe. The shrimp are slightly sweet, with a touch of tang. This shrimp recipe is great on a hot day when you don't want to heat up the kitchen. The marinade is super easy to whip up. The shrimp take no time to cook on the grill. Serve with a fresh green salad and you have a quick & easy dinner or a great cookout snack.
