Want to know the trick to grilling flavorful shrimp? It’s all about the marinade. Before firing up your grill, submerge your shrimp in an alluring combination of tequila, lime juice and bold spices that’ll give them exceptional flavor when cooked over an open flame. Serve them in a tortilla, over a bed of rice or with a homemade salsa for a wholesome meal that’s ‘shrimply’ delicious.
