Tequila Lime Cajun Shrimp

What’s my inspiration?

Isn’t a bag of shrimp and an open mind enough inspiration sometimes?  I grabbed a bunch of ingredients in my cupboard, threw them together and whala!  A quick and easy seafood dish.

BTW, the urban dictionary definition of “whala” totally cracked me up: “a bastardized english version of the French word “voila” meaning “there it is”.  Often used by morons in an attempt to sound more intelligent than they actually are.”  Guess I’m a moron 🙂  Fine by me.  Maybe I should have titled this post Morons version of Tequila Lime Cajun Shrimp!

What you need:

  • 1 pound shrimp – raw and de-veined (shell on or off)
  • 3 tablespoons EVOO
  • 1 oz Jose Cuervo Tequila 
  • 1 lime
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun Seasoning – I like Coastal Seafoods version
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
What you do:
  • In a large zip lock bag, combine all ingredients and shake until shrimp is covered
  • Marinate up to 2 hours
  • Skewer shrimp
  • Grill 2-3 minutes per side or until just pink (cook time will vary based on how large the shrimp are.  Do not over cook or shrimp will get tough and chewy)
