Spicy Mexican Shrimp Skewers

Spicy Mexican Shrimp Skewers

These shrimp are flavored in a zesty tequila, garlic, lime and chile marinade.



  1. In non-reactive bowl, combine all ingredients except for shrimp.
  2. In heavy, resealable plastic bag, place marinade and shrimp, turning bag over a few times and refrigerate about 1 to 2 hours.
  3. Remove shrimp, discard marinade and skewer.
  4. Place on hot grill for 5 to 6 minutes, turning over, or until they are opaque and tender.

Yield: 6 servings

Tips: Use the freshest chili powder as possible as its aroma decreases with age. Shrimp may be grilled under a broiler instead of on the barbecue.
