Tequila Lime Grilled Shrimp
Recipe from The Food Channel

This tasty grilled shrimp dish is great anytime, but is especially welcome in this, the year of Mexico's dual anniversaries. September 16, 2010, is the bicentennial of Mexico's Independence Day and November 20 is the centennial of the Mexican Revolution.
