With a peppery citrus aroma, this spicy and smoky mezcal-infused blend carefully crafted by Derek Wolf emulates the experience of sipping mezcal with a citrus back.
Smoked Chipotle Mezcal
Begin by adding your shrimp to a large food safe bowl or bag along with all the ingredients for the quick marinade (use the Smoked Chipotle Mezcal or seasoning substitute). Let that sit for 10-15 minutes, then drain the excess marinade. Begin skewering the shrimp onto the skewers and set aside.
Preheat your grill for direct cooking at high heat temperature (around 375-400F). 2. Add a basting cast iron skillet over the flames to preheat. Add your tequila to simmer for 2-3 minutes, then add your butter and garlic to melt. Let simmer for 1 more minute, then add the chopped cilantro right before taking it off.
Once the butter is done, pull off and add your shrimp to the grill to cook for 2-3 minutes per side.
Once you flip the first time, begin carefully basting with the tequila lime butter. When the shrimp are done, pull off and rest for 1-2 minutes.
Garnish the shrimp with cilantro, remove from skewers. Serve & enjoy!
