Spring is here, the grills are out, and everyone is craving fresh, bright flavors. These delicious grilled shrimp are marinated in a blend of añejo tequila, lime and spices. They will surely bring a little fire and a lot flavor to your Cinco de Mayo table this year.
Find some jumbo shrimp at the supermarket along with some fresh bell peppers and onions. While the shrimp soak up all that delicious south-of-the-border flavor, cut up your peppers and onions and toss them on the grill. Pro tip: make the spicy sauce that goes on top of the tacos in your personal blender ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for Cinco de Mayo.
We recommend grilling the taco shells, too. It really brings out the toasted corn flavor. Skewer the shrimp and cook them on a really hot grill for a couple minutes until they are just done.
Set out all of the ingredients on your table - including some fresh lime margaritas - and let everyone dig in. The punchy flavor of the tacos will go perfectly with your drinks and a side of chips and salsa (and maybe some slow cooker queso). It’s a quick and easy recipe full of festive fiesta flavor.
