Tequila Shrimp and Citrus

Tequila Shrimp and CitrusRecipe
Add tangy flavor to grilled shrimp by marinating it in margarita ingredients: tequila, lime juice and orange juice, plus a little bit of cilantro and garlic.  You'll have plenty of the margarita ingredients left, so make a cocktail to enjoy while the shrimp marinates.
