Todd and I wanted to try something a little different for dinner a few Sundays ago. In fact, it was the Sunday with the beautiful complete double rainbow, and overall, that afternoon was pretty blissed out. The tasty shrimp didn't hurt, either.
Todd got this recipe from this blog, which is fun because the dude on that blog is also named Todd. We didn't do much different. It's extremely easy, very low maintenance and extremely delicious.
Tequila Lime Shrimp
serves 2 - 4
1lb shrimp, peeled and de-veined
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 tsp sugar
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp tequila
1 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp fresh lime juice
Mix all the ingredients together and add your shrimp. Marinate for about 20 minutes, no longer. Any longer and the shrimp will start to get funky.
At this point we went outside to stare at a rainbow. Then Todd heated the grill. After your 20 minutes are up, go ahead and skewer your shrimpies. The original recipe called for bamboo skewers, soaked in water, but we just used our metal ones. I know it's not as boho-chic, but WHATEVER
Did I just throw shade at that other blog? I'll never tell, but a site that uses sensual imagery to describe food in an unironic way... Meh.
Grill the shrimp until cooked through, about 2-3 minutes per side, maybe longer depending on their size.
So tasty! Sex on a stick! Meat popsicle! Dirty raunchy drunk ass ho shrimp! DIVINE! or shall I say, de-vein?
Anyways, enjoy! Sprinkle with some extra lime juice if you want. Todd and I devoured these bad boys before our actual meal, standing in the kitchen right in front of this plate. When Alex refused to eat any, I cannot lie, Todd and I were happy about it. I'd like to try this marinade for some grilled chicken too.
