Tequila Marinated Shrimp Skewers

Pretty much anything on a skewer is a must for the grill. There are so many combinations you can choose from. This shrimp was a winner. I just wish I would have measured while making it! I’ll do my best to give you the best estimates I can.


Yeah, that’s a bottle of tequila back there. Be generous with it.


And get creative with what you pair it with! I used pineapple and mango chunks, tomatoes, red onion…yum.

Tequila Marinated Shrimp Skewers

2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup tequila
juice from 3 limes
3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
wooden skewers (soaked for at least an hour)
pineapple, mango, grape tomatoes, red onion (or whatever else you’d like to use)

Place shrimp in a bowl. Add tequila, lime juice, cilantro and cayenne pepper. Sprinkle some salt and mix. Let marinate for at least an hour.

Add shrimp and other ingredients to skewers. Grill for a few minutes on each side. Serve.
