Honey Tequila & Lime Shrimp!

My first post- college blog post! I actually made this meal the first weekend I came home, but haven’t got around to sharing it until now. This dinner was so quick and easy – a perfect start to summer! Grilled shrimp marinated in fresh honey, lime and tequila with brown rice and homemade guacamole.

– 1 1/2 pounds of shrimp (I thawed frozen, de-veined shrimp)
– 1/2 cup of tequila
– 1 tsp of lime zest
– Juice of 1 lime
– 1 lime, to serve on the side
– 1 tbsp of pure honey
– 2 cloves of garlic, miced
– 1-2 tbsp of cilantro, finely chopped
– kosher salt and fresh black pepper


Whisk together all of your ingredients in a large bowl then add in the shrimp. Make sure all of the shrimp is coated in the marinated and let it sit for about 20-30 minutes. I used a grill pan on my stove; the shrimp quick fast, so keep an eye on them. You’ll known when the shrimp is done when they begin to curl up (probably no more than 3 minutes total). Serve with fresh lime slices on the side, brown rice, homemade guacamole and gluten free corn chips!
*My best friend is allergic to shrimp, so I used the same marinate for grilled chicken.
