Tequila-lime grilled shrimp skewers

I love shrimp, so I'm always looking for new ways to eat it. Decided to mix up a great marinade and see how that went. It went amazing and was a hit with my friends.

How to Make Tequila-lime grilled shrimp skewers


  1. In a small bowl, mix together the tequila, lime juice, olive oil, margarita mix, honey, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Skewer the shrimp; about 4-5 on each skewer. Place skewers in a dish long enough for them to lay flat.
  3. Pour the marinade over the shrimp, cover and place in refrigerator for 1-4 hours.
  4. Heat grill to a medium-low heat. Place the shrimp skewers on the grill and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side.
    Remove and serve.
  5. These go great with your own coleslaw recipe or a nice rice medley.
