Food + Drink

Tacos could easily be considered one of my favorite food groups and these Tequila Lime Shrimp Tacos are so much better than your basic taco! Lately, I have been leaning more into chicken and shrimp tacos, rather than beef options. I feel so much better when I eat them and they are just more fun.

For entertaining purposes, these Tequila Lime Shrimp Tacos are more than perfect. You can have your marinade pre-mixed and simply add your shrimp in a few minutes before you want to cook them. These shrimp are great on the grill or you can cook them in a pan. Whatever suits your need!

Although we have paired these Tequila Lime Shrimp with tacos, these are also great on their own served with rice. You can even add your leftovers to a quesadilla!

Ingredients

1 lb medium shrimp, uncooked, deveined and tails removed

½ cup lime juice, freshly squeezed

⅓ cup tequila, I prefer Patrón Silver

1 small jalapeño pepper, finely chopped

3 cloves of minced garlic

Juice of 1 orange

2 teaspoons crushed red peppers

Instructions

Rinse and prepare shrimp. Remove tails.

Mix lime juice, tequila, chopped jalapeño, minced garlic, orange juice and crushed red pepper in a bowl.

Add shrimp to a large freezer bag and pour lime juice mixture over top. Gently massage the shrimp for a moment to make sure that every shrimp is coated well.

Place in refrigerator for about 5-10 minutes.

Heat a skillet over medium-low heat. Add shrimp to pan and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side. You want the shrimp to be light pink, but not overdone!

Serve with a corn tortilla and your favorite toppings! We suggest cotija cheese, cabbage slaw, jalapeño, sour cream, and avocado. Just to name a few!
