Shrimp seasoned with fragrant spices and spiked with tequila and SYRACHA'CUSE Habanero hot sauce takes a weeknight meal from ordinary to amazing in less than 10 minutes!
I'm not much of a tequila drinker and the alcohol cooks out of the recipe so you don't have to worry about the effects of the alcohol, but whats left is some amazing flavor.
2 red bell peppers, stemmed and de-seeded
4 limes, cut in half
6 tablespoons SYRACHA'CUSE Habanero Hot Sauce
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided, plus more for the grill
1/4 cup tequila
25 cilantro sprigs, cut chiffonade
1/2 cup chives, cut into very thin long strips
6 cloves garlic, grated
1 inch piece ginger, grated
1/8 cup fresh lime juice, plus zest
2 tablespoons agave
Kosher salt, to taste
16 jumbo head-on and tail-on shrimp, peeled and deveined
Heat grill to medium-high heat and place the peppers over the flame until charred. Repeat with limes, charring the flesh side of the limes and set aside. In a food processor, puree the charred roasted peppers for 30 seconds.
Combine all marinade ingredients and pureed red peppers in a large mixing bowl over ice and allow to stand for 20 minutes. Remove from ice, submerge shrimp in marinade and allow to stand for 30-40 minutes so the marinade can fully penetrate the shrimp.
Heat grill to medium-high heat and grill the shrimp for 2 minutes per side until completely cooked. Serve immediately with the grilled limes as garnish.
