Grilled Tequila Lime Shrimp Recipe

Absolutely delicious and perfect for a summer barbecue! Many thanks to Colleen Kennedy for sharing this recipe.

You will need:

1 pound large shrimp (21-25 or larger)
2 cloves minced garlic
½ cup olive oil
¼ cup fresh squeezed lime juice
1 TBS tequila
½ tsp Kosher salt
a few shakes of red pepper
½ cup chopped parsley


Clean the shrimp and set aside.
In a small bowl, combine garlic, oil, lime juice, tequila, salt, and red pepper; mix well.
Add half the chopped parsley and toss well.
Add the shrimp and marinate for 30-60 minutes in the refrigerator.
Heat grill to high heat.
Place the shrimp directly on your grill.
Cook for 3 minutes on the first side and 2 minutes on the second side. Be certain they’re pink and cooked through.

Enjoy with a green salad, fresh bread, and corn on the cob!
