Tequila Garlic Prawns

Tequila Garlic Prawns


"This dish is simple, tasty, and-best of all-fast. I've made it with both peeled and unpeeled shrimp. Unpeeled was definitely messier to eat, but I think on the whole the unpeeled shrimp were a little juicier. This recipe is tasty without the tequila, too. I love garlic, so I use an insane amount of it in this dish."

This was wonderful, and my husband liked it as well, I put salt and pepper on the shrimp, because the recipe didnt call for it, and added a little butter too. I didnt use that much cilantro eit...

While quite delicious overall, I found that the cilantro somewhat overpowered the other flavours, and the garlic (which was my reason for cooking this dish) was almost imperceptible. Next time, ...

This recipe is easy to make and with a salad makes a great dinner.

It was okay. Even after I added some salt and pepper, I was still not too impressed.
