Tequila Shrimp (Camarones Borrachos)
Prepare all ingredients before starting to cook the shrimp, so the shrimp do not get overcooked.
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 white onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 24 shrimp, peeled
- 1/4 c tequila
- 3 Roma tomatoes, diced (or can of diced tomates, drained)
- 2 limes, juiced
- 1 tbsp chopped cilantro
- 1 avocado, peeled, pitted, diced
- salt and pepper to taste
Saute onions and garlic in the olive oil until the onions are translucent. Add shrimp and continue to saute for 3 to 4 minutes. Add tequila and burn off the alcohol. Add the tomatoes and saute for another 3-4 minutes. Add lime juice when the shrimp is cooked half way. When shrimp is fully cooked, fold in the cilantro and avocado. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
