Grilled Shrimp Soft Tacos

There has been a whole lot of hoopla regarding this recipe among a group of girlfriends. Christen, the creator, has a pretty fancy schmancy blog with some pretty yummy looking meals. So I trust her judgment in the kitchen. Plus I love shrimp and we all know about my love for Mexican food so this was really a win-win situation for me.

1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
Marinade (below)
1 avocado, sliced
Sour cream
Shredded cheese

1 envelope McCormick's Baja Citrus Marinade
1 T water
2 T tequila
juice of 1/2 lime
2 T apple cider vinegar

Whisk envelope of marinade, water, tequila, lime juice and vinegar together in a bowl. Add shrimp and coat evenly. Transfer marinade and shrimp to a ziploc bag (I find it coats better). Keep refrigerated until ready to put on the grill.

Preheat grill to 400 degrees. Place shrimp on skewers (easy way) or directly on grates (lazy way) and grill for about 1 1/2 minutes on each side.

Make tacos using toppings of your choice.

Mr. ShoeFanatic thinks the cheese picture is "dressed down." I think it's super yummy looking so I put it anyway.

Oh this was good. Very, very good. That marinade is freaking amazing. And Mr. ShoeFanatic's homemade salsa was better than most restaurants. It went very well with all the other ingredients.

Make this soon. Very, very soon.

Thanks, Christen!

ETA: We also tried this with grilled chicken and it was equally as good.
