Grilled Tequila Shrimp Skewers on the Weber Traveler







Jumbo shrimp are soaked in a tequila marinade for one hour before being skewered and seared on a scorching hot grill.


– olive oil – Jose Cuervo tequila – fresh cilantro – lemon zest – Morton Seasoned Salt – garlic – chipotle powder

Why Use Tequila?

The obvious reason to use tequila in the marinade is for the unique flavor that it brings to the party.

Marinate the Shrimp

Add the shrimp to the marinade and let them soak for an hour in the refrigerator.  There is no acid in this marinade so you can marinate the shrimp overnight if desired.

Grill the Shrimp

Take the shrimp out of the marinade and stick them on bamboo skewers (5-6 shrimp per skewer). I let the Weber Traveler preheat for 15 minutes and it got scorching hot.  I put the skewers onto the grill and had fun watching the dripping olive oil cause a little flareup!

Close the lid and let the shrimp grill for three minutes. Open up the grill, flip the shrimp and veggies and grill another two minutes.

I served the shrimp skewers with the grilled squash and a side of creamy broccoli slaw for a dinner that was packed with flavor but still surprisingly healthy.
