I made this tonight, but instead of grilling I just saute’d them in a small skillet.
Grilled Margarita Shrimp for Two
A fresh cilantro marinade makes this dinner for two irresistible!
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 cup margarita mix (from 33.8-oz. bottle)
2 tablespoons tequila
12 shelled deveined uncooked large shrimp with tails left on
1. Soak 4 bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes. In 1-quart resealable food storage plastic bag, combine cilantro, garlic, margarita mix and tequila. Add shrimp; seal bag and shake to coat. Refrigerate 30 minutes to marinate.
2. Meanwhile, heat grill.
3. When ready to grill, thread shrimp on skewers; discard marinade. Place shrimp on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches over medium coals. Cook 5 to 7 minutes or until shrimp turns pink, turning several times.
