    Nif's Note:

    A Mexican twist on the traditional Spanish tapas - with olive oil, lime and Corona Extra. For optimum results: Serve with ice cold Corona Extra. Obviously, this is a recipe that I got from Corona! Enjoy!

      YUMMO! This dish was really scrumptious. It hit the spot, especially when I was craving shrimp. Very refreshing. I used Coors Light instead of the Corona beer because that's what I had. I also used cilantro and mixed it into the sauce instead of topping it like the recipe instructed. Next time I will sprinkle it over the top; reason is that my girls thought it over powered the dish, but that was my fault for not listening to how it was written. I'm adding it to my "keeper" files. Thank you Nif for sharing. Made it for Went to Market tag game.
