Marination: Where the Magic Begins

To infuse your shrimp with mouthwatering flavors, gather the following ingredients and precise measurements:

  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

In a bowl, combine the lime juice, minced garlic, chili powder, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to create a zesty marinade that will awaken your taste buds. Add the shrimp to the marinade, ensuring they are fully coated. Allow them to marinate for approximately 30 minutes, letting the flavors mingle and work their magic. ⏰🌶️

Grilling: Unleashing the Flavors

Now it's time to fire up your grill and let the flavors come alive. Prepare your preferred grill—whether it's the Grilla Grills Kong or Kamado Grill—for direct grilling over medium-high heat. Skewer the marinated shrimp, creating a vibrant lineup of fiery goodness ready to meet the flames. Place the skewers on the preheated grill grates, and let the magic unfold. Allow the shrimp to grill for about 2-3 minutes per side until they turn pink and develop a slight char, infusing them with a tantalizing smoky flavor. 🔥🍽️

Serving Up the Firecracker Fiesta

To complement the grilled shrimp skewers, whip up a zesty Tequila-Lime Avocado Crema using the following ingredients:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon tequila for an extra kick

In a blender or food processor, combine the ripe avocado, sour cream, lime juice, chopped cilantro, and tequila (if desired). Blend until the mixture reaches a smooth and creamy consistency. Adjust the tanginess and creaminess according to your preference.

Once the shrimp are cooked to perfection, remove them from the grill. Arrange the skewers on a platter and serve them with a generous drizzle of the Tequila-Lime Avocado Crema. The creamy and tangy crema beautifully complements the spiciness of the shrimp, creating a harmonious explosion of flavors. Serve alongside your favorite sides, such as grilled corn, fresh salad, or fluffy rice, and let the culinary celebration begin! 😍🌽
