tequila lime shrimp
large shrimp (26-30/pound)
thawed, peeled, tails on
Juice & zest of 1/2 lime
or more to taste
Salt & pepper
Combine the marinade ingredients in a large Ziploc bag. Add the shrimp and toss gently to coat. Let sit for 30 minutes.
If using wooden skewers, it's a good idea to soak them for 30 minutes to reduce burning/splintering.
Thread the shrimp onto your skewers.
Preheat BBQ/grill to high. Reduce heat to medium-high, and grill the shrimp for about 4 minutes/side, or until they're cooked through, taking care not to overcook.
Keep in mind any BBQ/grill/grill pan is different, so actual cooking time may vary.
Serves 2 as a main dish (assuming you have some sort of side with it), or 4 as an appetizer.
