Looks Delicious! Spicy Margarita Shrimp

Posted by in Looks Delicious!

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Looks Delicious! (Spicy Margarita Shrimp, submitted by TK member Damielo)

Mmmm. Spicy Margarita Shrimp. This dish has so much going for it that it’s like a fiesta on a plate. Shrimp, avocado, tequila (woohoo!), triple sec, curry, cumin, turmeric … it’s enough to make one want to grab a sombrero and sit under a tree with a mariachi band.

Yes, sometimes my visualizations puzzle me too.

Tasty Kitchen member Damielo promises that the marinade will work with chicken or white fish as well, and you can serve this on rice, quinoa, or a salad if you want to go the low carb route.

Thanks for such a gorgeous recipe, Damielo!

These are FANTASTIC! Made them for my husband, our daughter, and son-in-law and it has become my SIL favorite dish. YUM!

Wow — these are absolutely fantastic! My husband has requested they become part of the cooking rotation! I’m trying to decide if the marinade would work with tilapia. Served with cilantro & lime rice – AMAZING!!

Margarita sounds perfect! Who needs to bother with all the other ingredients. I’ll just boil that shrimp and sprinkle it with some leftoverfromthemargarita lime juice and we’re done!! Thanks :)

Can’t wait to cook! This is the type of dish I will cook every night once my high school freshman, fish-avoiding, yet totally lovable child is in her dorm room at college. on 9.22.2010

Not only does it look good, it has bumped my meatballs off the menu for this evening. I have everything on hand and will be preparing this instead! I can’t wait

Yum! I just got a sudden craving for a giant plate of lime-y shrimp, and I haven’t even finished my morning coffee yet.
