    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is one of the*best* tequila shrimp recipes, you can also make this recipe using chicken, I add in a couple of honey in with the ingredients and marinade for a much longer time (about 3-4 hours) --- you should get about 8 skewers with this recipe, depending on the size of your shrimp.
