Dinner Recipe: Bloody Mary Shrimp

1) We love shrimp.

2) We also love bloody mary cocktails.

I wanted to try a new marinade for shrimp so I thought I'd try combining these two things. It turned out to be a wonderful marriage so I wanted to share it with you.

What you'll need:
Your favorite bloody mary mix (we love Mr & Mrs T's Premium)
Raw & devained shrimp
Prepared horseradish, spoonful
1 fresh lime, juice (and then throw the lime in the bag too)
Salt & Pepper
2 large pressed garlic cloves
Worcestershire Sauce, 3-4 dashes
Hot sauce, to your heat preference

What to do:
Put all ingredients in a large ziplock baggie. Pour enough bloody mary mix to cover all of your shrimp.
Seal your baggie and make sure everything is combined nicely.
Place in your fridge for a few hours (making sure all the shrimp are covered in the mix).
Put shrimp on scewers and grill until cooked throughout.

They were so yummy to eat just as is right off the grill. I served on grilled corn tortillas topped with homeade guacamole and shredded cabbage. However these would be great served on top of a thick cut grilled steak or even over some jasmine rice. Or how about garnishing the brim of your bloody mary drink with a few of these.

Enjoy my friends. I'll be adding it to my Recipe Box on the sidebar.
