Whether you’re looking for something to feed a bunch of people for a Cinco de Mayo party, or just a quick and easy dinner for you and your girl, these Tequila Herradura Shrimp Tacos are something you should consider including on the menu.
They take only a few minutes to throw together, and call for a healthy dose of Herradura Silver tequila and Newcastle Brown Ale. Shrimp sautéed in tequila and beer? How could you possibly go wrong?
Tequila Herradura Shrimp Tacos
(Makes 10 tacos)
1 lb Peeled, uncooked shrimp cut into smallish pieces
2 Large cloves garlic, minced fine
1/2 Cup cilantro, chopped fine
Peanut oil for sautéing
1/4 Cup Tequila Herradura Silver
1/4 Cup Newcastle Brown Ale
10 Corn tortillas, warmed1/2 Cup sour cream
1 Cup purple cabbage, shredded fine
Your favorite hot sauce
Combine shrimp, cilantro and garlic in a medium bowl. Mix well and let sit about 10 minutes. If want to marinate them longer, just put them in the fridge.
Heat a non-stick pan really well and add about 1 tablespoon of peanut oil. Add the shrimp and stir fry quickly. They’ll cook fast, so be careful not to over do them.
When the shrimp are almost cooked, remove from the heat (so you don’t get a flame-up), and add the tequila and ale. Mix gently. After about a minute, return to the heat and stir well.
Serve by putting some sour cream on a tortilla, add a little cabbage, the shrimp and a final drizzle of your hot sauce.
