  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • salt pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 pound extra large shrimp peeled deveined with tails on for presentation
  • wooden skewers soaked in a few tablespoons more of Tequila and the rest water for 1/2 hour
  • one large zip lock bag
  • Extra fresh limes for serving and garnish



Step 1

Whisk all ingredients together. Pour this in a large Ziploc bag with shrimp for 1-2 hours (remembering citrus will cook the shrimp if it's marinaded too long) . Drain. Thread each shrimp on soaked wooden skewers. Spray grill grates lightly with cooking oil. Heat grill. Place shrimp on the grill. Cook shrimp until it turns pink. Takes around 5 minutes total. Serve with slices or wedges of lime.
