Now to celebrate this monumental day, let’s have some alcohol, an alcohol-infused dish, with shrimp, my favorite ingredient in the whole world.
Alcohol does wonders to food, such as this amazing, enticing, and absolutely mouthwatering Tequila Lime Shrimp. Garlic, paprika, tequila, lime, cilantro and shrimp; they are perfect match made in food heaven.
God bless the Mexicans for inventing this recipe and now I just can’t wait for Cinco de Mayo in May.
To make the best sizzling Tequila Lime Shrimp ala your favorite Mexican restaurant, I suggest you use a cast iron skillet. You start by seasoning the shrimp with salt, black pepper and paprika.
Fire up your skillet, saute the garlic and shrimp until the shrimp is slightly burned, then drizzle in the tequila. The alcohol is going to vaporize in high heat and the shrimp will be infused with the intoxicating tequila flavors.
The best thing of all, it takes 15 minutes from prep to dinner table. Now get yourself some margarita, tortillas or Mexican rice, and you will have the best restaurant-style meal at home, at a fraction of the cost. Enjoy!
