Shrimp In Tequila-lime Cream Preparation
Melt butter in pan with oil. Saute onions and chile lightly then add shrimp. Continue to saute until shrimp turn a pink color. Flame with the tequila. Add the lime zest and heavy cream then reduce the sauce over medium heat. The sauce should boil lightly and begin to thicken a little. Add seasoning to taste and lime juice with a splash of tequila to finish.
Serve over brown rice (or shredded cauliflower if you are cutting carbs). Garnish with some parsley or cilantro.

While this dish is diabetic-friendly it's not really a "diet" dish. It's quite rich so you'll probably want to use it for special occasions. The creamy sauce and tangy flavor make it worth the extra calories.
