Why I Love This Recipe

Everyone loves this when I do a mixed grill. Last time I had prosciutto wrapped asparagus, mini roasted potatoes and kale, grilled chicken strips marinated in mango chili and my mango, papaya, avocado salsa. Wow! Couldn't believe how everyone lapped all those up, even the young kids who I didn't think would go for the kale and asparagus. They usually turn their noses up at that stuff.


Ingredients You'll Need

Marinade:
1/2 cup tequila
2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice (usually one lime)

1 Tbsp minced jalapeno pepper (usually small one, seeds removed)
1 tsp cumin
1/2 fresh ground pepper

32 medium to large shrimp (1 1/2 lbs) peeled and deveined
Kosher salt
1 fresh lime, cut into wedges
