Recipe by Galley Wench

(Title is so long it doesn't fit into the alloted space) Mexican Caesar Salad with Tequila & Lime-Grilled Shrimp with Chipotle Dressing. Found this recipe in Sabroso, a great little southwest dining guide from the Las Cruces/El Paso area. UPDATE 6/15/08 . . . An error has been found in the ingredients (actually two errors , soy and chicken broth). They have been corrected. Sorry for any inconvenience.

I made this salad after the corrections to the recipe had been made and thought it was absolutely fantastic!!! I marinated the shrimp for a couple of hours and the flavors of the marinade were delicate but flavorful, nothing overpowering, perfect! We also really enjoyed the dressing, had a little kick from the chipotle chilies, and I added just a little extra adobo sauce. For the corn, I brushed the cob with the lime/tequila marinade and grilled it for just a few minutes to increase the grilling flavor. This is a fabulous supper and I see this recipe coming out regularly this summer! Made for Las Mistico Magicos Sirenas - ZWT#5.
