Spicy Margarita Shrimp Skewers are perfect for your next party.  Tequila, lime, and a hint of Sriracha make these shrimp extra delicious!



2 pounds large shrimp (peeled, deveined, butterflied)

Margarita Marinade:

1/4 cup Blanco Tequila

1/4 cup lime juice (fresh squeezed)

1/4 cup honey

2 tablespoons Sriracha (or other hot sauce)

3 cloves garlic (sliced thin)

2 tablespoons olive oil

12 skewers

Dipping Sauce

3 tablespoons cocktail sauce

1 tablespoon prepared horseradish

1 tablespoon Sriracha

parsley (for garnish)


Start by marinating the shrimp.

Place your peeled (leave the tails on for presentation if you want to) shrimp in a large bag.

Mix your marinade by combining Sriracha, honey, tequila, lime juice, garlic, and 2 tablespoons olive oil.

Pour over the shrimp and close the bag.

Store in the fridge for 4 hours.

When ready to serve, place 2 or 3 shrimp on each skewer.

Bake your Margarita Shrimp Skewers

Preheat the oven to 400F.

Place the shrimp skewers on a baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until shrimp are done to your liking.

While the margarita shrimp skewers are cooking, prepare the cocktail sauce.

Mix the cocktail sauce, prepared horseradish, and Sriracha and place in a serving bowl.

When the shrimp are done cooking remove them from the oven.

Serve them on the skewers with the cocktail sauce, lime wedges for squeezing, and a sprinkle of parsley.
