Cheap and Easy Gourmet dinner cont./ Tequila grilled shrimp Recipe

As I promise you here is the recipe from my previous post.
It's easy, it's fast but mostly is delish. I found this recipe at marthastewart.com and  added a couple personal touches and other ingredients.
 I'll you share a secret... I never follow directions of any kind especially measurements. 
So this particular recipe I pretended to be Rachel Ray and eyeballed the amount of my ingredients.
 I accompany this delish "Borracho Shrimps" with an avocado, tomatoes and grilled corn salad sprinkled with chopped scallions and seasoned with olive oil, salt and a lime juice with a side of  grilled asparragus.
Hope you enjoy it as much I did.

Bon appetit!
