Servings: 6 People
- 2-3 lbs Shrimp peeled & deveined

- 3 medium Limes juiced
- 2 tbsp Chopped Cilantro
- 2 tbsp Smoked Chipotle Mezcal *See substitute if needed
- 1.5 tbsp Chipotle Purée
- 1.5 tbsp Honey

Tequila Lime Butter:
- 2 tbsp Unsalted Butter
- 2 oz Tequila Blanco

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).
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, serve and enjoy!
