Margarita Shrimp

Last night's dinner was fabulous, if I must say so myself!  I can't remember where I got the original recipe, but I've modified it a bit for our personal tastes.

Margarita Shrimp

1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/4 cup oil (I used this stuff, but you can use any vegetable or olive oil)
1/4 cup tequila
1 tsp grated lime peel
2 TBSP fresh lime juice
2 TBSP honey
1/2 tsp salt

Combine all the above ingredients and add 1 pound of large shrimp.  Marinate for 4-6 hours.  You can broil them for 5-7 minutes, but we prefer skewering them and grilling them.  I like to boil the remaining marinade and serve alongside the shrimp.
