Margarita Shrimp

This is what’s for dinner in the Bryan household tonight.  These shrimp are great as part of a meal or on a salad.

1/4 cup finely chopped green onions (about 4)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup tequila
1 teaspoon grated lime peel
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 lb uncooked shrimp (about 30), peeled (tails left on) and deveined

In a medium bowl mix all ingredients and add shrimp-stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate 4 to 8 hours to marinate.  If you are going to use these shrimp for a salad, reserve 1/4 cup of marinade to toss with the salad before you add the shrimp.

Drain shrimp and discard marinade.  I cook these on the grill, but if you want you can broil in the oven.  (Spray broiler pan with cooking spray, broil 4 inches from heat for 5-7 minutes, turning once, until shrimp turn pink.)
