Keto Grilled Tequila Shrimp

Plump and juicy shrimp, seasoned well, slightly spicy and spiked with tequila. This easy keto shrimp recipe will quickly become a summer favorite. Great for a weeknight dinner, a family barbecue or any get together.

Cook Time 4 minutes

Ingredients

  • 10-12 metal skewers can use wooden skewers, but make sure you soak wooden skewers for several hours prior to use
  • 2 pounds peeled shrimp
  • 1/2 cup olive oil (can substitute peanut oil)
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 small chopped shallots
  • 2 medium cloves of garlic-minced
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • chopped parsley for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Thread shrimp onto metal skewers. About 6-7 shrimp per skewer. Don't over crowd the shrimp. You want to give each shrimp enough space to make contact with the grill.

  2. Place the skewers in a shallow glass dish. Don’t use an aluminum pan!

  3. In a bowl, mix the tequila, lime juice, garlic, shallots, cumin, and salt and pepper. Base the salt and pepper on your personal taste. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until everything is well blended.

  4. Pour over the shrimp and leave in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours to marinate.

  5. Oil the grill to prevent sticking or apply anon-stick spray like Pam. Bring the grill to medium heat.

  6. Lay out the skewers and cook for about 3 or 4 minutes on each side.

  7. Serve immediately.
