Shrimp is one of our favorite seafoods so healthy and so easy to cook in so many delicious ways. We make this dish often at home it takes less than 10 minutes from start to finish so it can be made during the week. Seasoned with our Syracuse Habanero hot sauce gives it a whole new level of flavor and just the right amount of heat. We love to experiment with all our hot sauces with this recipe and others.

Tequila Lime Habanero Shrimp courtesy of SYRACHA'CUSE
2 red bell peppers, stemmed and de-seeded
4 limes, cut in half
6 tablespoons SYRACHA'CUSE Syracuse 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.
