Margaritas and Shrimp All Around

Margaritas and Shrimp All Around created by Jonathan Melendez

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!

  • Combine all of the Awesome Margarita ingredients in a large pitcher and stir until the sugar dissolves. Refrigerate.
  • Preheat broiler or grill.
  • Put some crushed ice in a glass and sample margarita.
  • In a glass mixing bowl, mix a 1/4 cup of the Margarita with the oil and chipotle. Season with salt and pepper, add shrimp and toss to coat. Let stand for 15-20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, Put some crushed ice in a glass and sample chilling margarita.
  • Drain the shrimp and arrange on a baking sheet.
  • Check glass to see if it is in need of refill.
  • 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.
  • Go ahead and refill your glass -- you deserve it!

    Learned this trick some 30 odd years ago on one of my trips to Mexico - a summer staple for my guests. I make 2 batches, one as written and one kicked up a bit for those that prefer a kick.

    I added fresh grated garlic and more adobo to the kicked up version. Horseradish works well too.
