Grilled Shrimp Tacos Recipe
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tspn olive oil
1 Tbsp white tequila (or gold, whatever)
pinch of salt and pepper
pinch ancho chile powder (optional)
Combine marinade ingredients and add to shrimp. Marinade for 30 minutes. Place on skewers, reserving marinade liquid and garlic. Prepare the avocado sauce and corn salsa. Grill the shrimp over high heat till done. 3-5 minutes depending on your grill. Heat a small pan over medium-high heat. Add butter and reserved marinade ingredients. Cook for 3 minutes until thickened slightly. Chop cooked shrimp into small pieces and add to cooked marinade. Warm tortillas on the grill or on a griddle. 30 seconds to a minute per side. Don’t overcook. You don’t want them crispy. You want them soft and hot and pliable.
Place a few spoonfuls of shrimp mixture on a tortilla. Spoon over some corn salsa. Add a little avocado sauce and some hot sauce. Awesome.
