    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    First prepare the Margarita and put in the refrigerator to keep cold, then work on the shrimp. The recipe works best if you sample the margarita as you prepare the spicy shrimp. Be sure to leave at least a 1/4 cup for the shrimp or you will have to make more margaritas. Depending on how much you have sampled you may want someone else to tend to the grill. And, as always, don't skimp on the quality of tequila. Oh, and the shrimp is phenomenal!

      If you are grilling the shrimp, put 2 shrimp on each of the 16 skewers and grill shrimp for 3 minutes, turning once. Or if you are using your oven, broil the shrimp as close to the heat as possible for 2 to 3 minutes, turning once, until opaque and cooked through. Put 2 shrimp on each of 16 skewers and serve warm or at room temperature with lime wedges.

      No doubt an *awesome* Margarita to sip on while preparing the shrimp! Thank goodness, these were handed to DH to put on the barbie ;) They were delicious, both the Margaritas and Shrimp. Next time I'm making them for the whole gang. Terrific Recipe, deserving more than 5 stars...!!! Thanks for Sharing - Made for ZWT3 Cheers ~V

      Definitely a 5-star recipe, but mainly for the Margarita. I did add a bit of honey but omitted the sugar entirely, as per personal preference. Since I'm vegetarian I used what I thought would be an excellent substitute for shrimp, which is tofu (not the silken variety). I was very pleased with the way it grilled up so nicely (with a nice brown crust, as per picture), but I must admit the margarita marinade didn't penetrate the tofu much because although it tasted hot, it was a bit bland otherwise. In order to brown the tofu the way I like it I had to broil for 5 minutes on each side. Shrimp will cook more quickly and might absorb the marinade better. Truly awesome margarita, though! Thanks!
