This is good but needs rice or maybe a tortilla with it.

Recipe Ingredients for Tequila Shrimp

8 oz. raw shrimp, peeled, deveined, tails removed
2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
1 small onion, sliced
3 tbsp. (1 1/2 oz. or 1 shot) tequila
2 tbsp. lime juice
2 tbsp. cilantro
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. salt

Recipe Directions for Tequila Shrimp

  1. Bring a large pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and cook until onion is slightly translucent, about 3 minutes. Carefully add tequila to the pan and stir. (It's unlikely it will flare up, but be cautious, just in case.) Cover the pan and let simmer for 5 minutes.

  2. Add shrimp and cook for about 3 minutes, until shrimp are nearly opaque. Add tomatoes, lime juice, cilantro, chili powder, and salt, and mix well. Stirring occasionally, cook until tomatoes have softened and shrimp are cooked through, about 2 minutes. Enjoy!
