    Recipe: Appetizer: Tequila Shrimp

    Okay bep35 … I snagged this from my wife (it’s her recipe, not mine). I can’t give you any back story on it since she has put it together over the years. But this is what she has in her recipe folder.

    Perfect app for holidays or big Mexican based dinners. If you add cornbread and black beans, it makes a great main course.

    • 1/2 cup tequila - any decent silver is good
    • 2 tbsp EVOO
    • 1 tbsp minced garlic or 2 cloves crushed
    • 1 tbsp minced jalapeño with seeds
    • 1 tsp ground coriander
    • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

    • 2 lbs peeled, deveined, medium shrimp (blue bag at costco)
    • 2 fresh limes, cut into wedges

    • whisk together marinade
    • Put shrimp in a 1 gallon ziplock bag
    • Add marinade, squeeze air out of bag and seal
    • Refrigerate for about 45 minutes
    • Remove shrimp from bag and discard marinade
    • Season lightly with salt
    • Either thread onto skewers or use grill basket
    • grill over direct heat until shrimp are cooked through, opaque and pink
    • Remove from grill, serve with lime wedges

    * Remove from grill, serve with lime wedges and tequila.

    ☝️ Fixed 😄

      Sorry I just had to add to the "Fix" 🤣👌

    Awesome! Definitely going to try this one. Have a great Thanksgiving.


      Very creative take on shrimp.
      I'd like to be creative like your wife, I just don't stray far from tried and true recipes.
      Just to conservative I guess.

        My wife is far and away the better cook. Much broader range of foods and much more willing to experiment. She has taught me, over the years, to go there.

      I make these all the time goes great on salads as well.

      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
