Can’t remember where I found this. But it’s easy and tasty.
1 pound shrimp (recipe said to use the 20/pound ones, but I was cheap and substituted smaller ones)
2 tablespoons tequila
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon Old Bay
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Peel and devein shrimp. Combine remaining ingredients and marinate shrimp for 1/2 to 1 hour. No longer or the shrimp will be tough. Saute shrimp in a pan 4-5 minutes until pink. Remove shrimp and stir in 1/2 tablespoon butter to the cooking juices, then pour sauce over the shrimp.
** The recipe actually calls for putting the shrimp on wooden skewers and then grilling them and basting with the butter sauce, but to heck with that. After you peel and devein a pound of shrimp, you sure aren’t going to want to thread them on skewers!
