Drunken Shrimp

This dish may be served as an appetizer or as a main course.
  • 1 lb. shelled large prawns or shrimp
  • Juice of 2 limes (lemon may be substituted)
  • 1/2 cup tequila (vodka, brandy, rice wine, or another liquor may be used as a substitute)
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 2 oz. fresh chopped cilantro

Marinate the shelled prawns or shrimp in the other ingredients for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight, under refrigeration in a close container. Skewer the prawns and grill them briefly, about 2 to 3 minutes per side over hot coals. Alternatively, broil them in a preheated oven for the same amount of time. Remove from skewers, arrange on a serving dish, and serve immediately. Garnish with sprigs of cilantro, lemon or lime wedges and slivered green onions.

Enjoy!
