Made these for a party, but did not want to do it at the last minute or have to thread everything on skewers, so i took another reviewers advice and made the shrimp in a pan on the stove. but i still grilled the peppers & fruit. then i combined everything overnight in the fridge and served it in a dish over ice so it would stay cold. I used red pepper flakes instead of jalepeno, and added bay leaves. Got a lot of comments on how tasty it was!
Tequila Shrimp and Citrus
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.
