DIRECTIONS

  • Shrimp Marinade and Grilling: In a glass bowl, stir together Tequila, lime juice, garlic and pepper.
  • Marinate shrimp for 30 minutes, stirring once or twice.
  • Over marinating will result in a very strong flavor!
  • Remove shrimp from marinade, and wrap shrimp in bacon pieces.
  • Thread shrimp on skewers and lightly sprinkle with seasoning salt.
  • Grill shrimp over medium hot charcoal fire, basting with Adobo BBQ sauce.
  • Turn shrimp every 2 minutes and continue to baste.
  • The shrimp should cook for about 10 minutes.
  • Bacon will be cooked, but not crisped.
  • Serve immediately and drizzle with additional sauce.
  • BBQ Adobo Sauce: Add dried chilies (except chipotle pepper) to 1 1/2 cups of boiling water.
  • Let sit for 15 minutes.
  • Remove chilies and reserve 1/2 cup of chile water.
  • Add chile, reserved water, onion, garlic, oregano, cinnamon, and cumin to a blender and puree.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan.
  • Sautee puree in pan and add vinegar and sugar, bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer until thick.
  • This should yield 2 cups of Adobo sauce.
  • I freeze the extra sauce.
  • Mix 1/2 cup of Adobo sauce with 1/2 cup of prepared BBQ sauce.
  • Differing the proportions of the mixture will give you varying degrees of spice.
  • Use this mixture to baste shrimp and drizzle remaining on shrimp.
