Margarita Shrimp Skewers

These Margarita Shrimp Skewers make the perfect summer meal that is light, healthy and marinated in garlic, fresh lime juice, cilantro and of course, tequila!  

Yield: 4 servings 1x



  1. Soak bamboo skewers for about 20 minutes in cold water; set aside.
  2. Whisk together lime juice, zest, olive oil, tequila, garlic, cilantro, salt and cayenne pepper in a bowl. Place peeled shrimp in a large ziplock bag and pour marinade over shrimp, shaking to combine. Allow shrimp to marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.
  3. Preheat grill on medium to high heat, making sure to lightly spray with oil to avoid sticking.
  4. While grill is heating up, start threading your shrimp onto the bamboo skewers and discard the marinade. Place the skewers on the grill, cooking shrimp until they turn pink, about 2 to 3 minutes each side. Serve and enjoy!
