I am giving this 4 stars only based on my final product which I had to add to. I found the shrimp prepared by the instructions was lacking in flavor. It didn't really retain much if any of the marinade flavors. I even marinated for an hour and half. And I added extra to the marinade. I was sorta disappointed in the lack of flavor so at the end I drizzled lime juice all over it and topped with some margarita salt and that really improved it! I suggest adding some of the flavors of the marinade after the shrimp is cooked. I served this with lemon rice and it was a nice compliment! Great idea, just needs some improvements!
This has to be one of the most amazing ways I have ever eaten prawns - but then maybe that is because I LOVE prawns and I LOVE Margaritas!!! I halved the recipe for just the two of us - we had this on Christmas Day in the evening with salad and TEQUILA! I did not skewer mine, but pan fried them quickly in a little of the marinade...........and drank another tequila!!! I also had to leave out the jalapeno - sorry, I would normally have kept it in as adore heat in food - but Malcolm is not a great lover of chilies.....NEXT time. An excellent keeper of a recipe - thanks Mama!!! FT:-)
