Shrimp, raw, 24 oz
Olive Oil, .25 cup
Olive Oil, 1 tbsp
Lime Juice, .25 cup
Tequila, 1 fl. oz
triple sec, .5 oz
Onions, raw, .25 cup, chopped
Cilantro, dried, 3 tbsp

Seal and squish contents to mix. Add shrimp to marinade, squeeze out all the air, and seal. Turn bag to coat shrimp. Refrigerate for 1 hour. (Do not over-marinate or the citrus acids will "cook" the shrimp.)
Heat a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 Tbsp olive oil to hot pan and swirl to coat. Remove shrimp from marinade, reserving marinade, and place in a single layer in the hot pan. Cook for 1 minute, then flip the shrimp to the other side. Do not overcook the shrimp or it will become rubbery. Add the reserved marinade to the pan. Cook 1 minute, then remove shrimp and keep warm. Continue cooking the marinade until it reduces to a thin sauce. Turn off heat, return the shrimp to the pan, and toss in the sauce.
Serve Caribbean Island Lime Shrimp over white rice. This dish is also good as a room temperature appetizer for parties.
Note: If you do not normally stock tequila and/or Triple Sec at home, simply pick up the mini single serving bottles. This recipe will use about half of a mini bottle of each. If you cannot consume alcohol, simply leave them out.
Number of Servings: 4
