About this recipe: Prawns are marinated briefly in tequila, lime juice and fresh coriander - then threaded onto wooden skewers and cooked on the bbq. The marinade is delicious with chicken, too.

I was intrigued by the recipe, however I needed an appetizer to take along to a party as a cold appetizer. I followed the recipe as presented and cooled the shrimp. I then made a second batch of the marinade but without the oil and mixed it with cream cheese and sour creame. I spread the amended marinade mixture on pieces of dark rye bread and pumpernickel and then laid the marinaded/grilled shrimp (after cooled) on top. It was awesome and everyone loved them. - 04 May 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe was SO simple and the shrimp was delicious. I ended up using half a lemon instead of the lime because I didn’t have any on hand- I also added a combo of red pepper flakes & chili powder in place of the ground red pepper. Lastly I cooked the shrimp on the stove top instead of on the grill to make it easier- put about a tbsp of olive oil in the skillet and some minced garlic. Let that heat up for 1 minute then threw the shrimp in, allowed them to cook for about 2-3 minutes then added snow peas and sugar snap peas. The shrimp cooked for 1 more minute after adding the vegetables then I served the shrimp over brown rice. Absolutely delicious! Good next day too- I ate it cold (so the shrimp wouldn’t get overcooked) and just added some sliced avocado... thanks for the recipe Jenny :o) - 07 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is the best grilled shrimp I've ever had. It was awesome! I did double the tequila but other than that followed the recipe exactly. - 29 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
