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.

This is different from the traditional Tequila-Lime shrimp because of the creamy sauce
