1 1/2 pounds
large shrimp - peeled and deveined
chopped fresh cilantro
salt and pepper to taste
What an excellent meal we made with this! We marinated 2lbs of shrimp in 1/2 cup tequila, 1/2 cup beer, some cilantro, garlic, and lime juice for about a 1/2 hour before sautéing with a tbsp of butter and some chopped onions. We served with black beans, pepper jack cheese, chopped tomatoes and avocados in whole wheat tortillas. You really can't make a more healthy or delicious meal!
HUGE Disappointment! I am beginning to lose faith in this website. Very bland and boring! I enjoy cooking healthy/lowfat meals but this was a waste of good shrimp!
Easy, elegant and delicious (with some changes since tequila I used was way too strong and overpowering).
I made it with 3/4lb. shrimp since I was only making it for my husband and I and here is what I did: I made it with 1/4 cup tequila, 1/4 light beer, added few shakes of red pepper flakes, and fresh lime juice (almost 1 lime) and it was FANTASTICK!! Very very easy to make and I served it over pasta. I find that adding light beer to this recipe was key to increasing the amt of sauce w/out losing too much of the key ingredient - tequila.
Delicious. I replaced half the tequila with lime juice and water, seasoned with a little margarita salt, and wrapped the cooked shrimp mixture in warm flour tortillas. My guests--who generally dislike seafood, but love margaritas and tequila--went for seconds.
Very quick, easy, and fun!
We really like this recipe. I used 1/4 cup of tequila and 1/4 cup of beer (it makes the taste more complex), and added the juice of 1/2 lime. Very easy. Serve on warm tortillas with black beans and frozen margaritas for a simple and fantastic meal.
yup.... good and simple shrimp recipe. No pasta for me, I made cilantro-lime rice to go with it.
My husband, daughter and I devoured this dish. It was excellent! I served it with Mexican rice, black beans, pico de gallo and slices of fresh avocado.
Real good recipe guideline. Squeeze 1/2 a lime over the shrimp when it's done cooking. Also, after adding the tequila you might want to ignite it to reduce the strong taste of alcahol. Great served with chili rellano casserole, and mexican rice with totillas.
