The citrus marinade for the shrimp is spiked with tequila, which makes for a very flavorful grilled appetizer, or serve over rice for a quick and easy dinner.

Forget this recipe. First time, made it as recommended and it was as if I never marinated it. Second time marinated for 2 hours. Still tasteless. I really believe this recipe was never tested before it was published.

I wasn't impressed with this recipe. The marinade didn't leave enough flavor and I felt that I was left with just grilled shrimp. I marinated it for recommended time as well. I won't be making this again.
