Pat shrimp dry with paper towels. Heat margarine and oil in a large skillet over a medium heat. Add garlic and shrimp; cook about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in tequila, lime juice, salt, and chili powder. Cook 2 minutes more or until most of the liquid is evaporated and shrimp is pink and glazed. Add cilantro.
Serve over hot, cooked rice, garnished with lime wedges.

losaviom 9 months agoThis recipe was ok. The sauce was lacking. I think it I make it again I would experiment a little more with the sauce.

AlaskaGrill 1 year agoKids liked it, wife thought it was a waste of tequila until she ate it. Doubled the sauce and used it over fried rice.
hmichel 1 year agoNot good at all! Don't think I'll ever cook with tequila again.
