Grilled Margarita Shrimp

Updated: Jan 4, 2020

Labor Day is quickly approaching. This unofficial last day of summer is a great excuse to crank up the grill for a big cookout. So for this week, here are two grilled shrimp recipes.

This recipe is not for everyone. But if you like margaritas, you will love these shrimp.

2 tablespoons Orange Liqueur

2 tablespoons Lime Juice

1/4 cup Tequila

1/4 cup Olive Oil

2 cloves Garlic, minced

1 fresh Jalapeño, seeded and minced

1/2 tablespoon Salt

1/4 cup fresh Cilantro, chopped

3 pounds medium-sized fresh Shrimp, peeled and deveined

Combine liqueur, lime juice, tequila, olive oil, garlic, jalapeño pepper, salt and cilantro in a heavy-duty, zip-top plastic bag; add shrimp. Seal and chill mixture for 1 hour. Remove shrimp from marinade, discarding marinade. Grill shrimp, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat, for 10 minutes, or until shrimp turn pink.
