  • 1 tablespoon lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1 tablespoon honey or agave syrup
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for extra heat)
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional, for a hint of spiciness)
  • 1/4 cup fresh herbs (such as parsley, cilantro, or basil), chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Skewers:

  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)
  • Lime wedges (for serving)

Prepare the Marinade: In a large bowl, combine the Daisy Point Margarita Mix, olive oil, garlic, lime juice, lemon juice, lime zest, honey or agave syrup, smoked paprika, ground cumin, chili powder, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, fresh herbs, salt, and pepper. Add the shrimp and toss gently to coat evenly with the marinade.

Instructions for Grilled Shrimp Skewers:

  1. Prepare the Marinade:
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together Daisy Point Margarita Mix, olive oil, minced garlic, lime juice, lime zest, honey or agave syrup, smoked paprika, ground cumin, chili powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper.
  1. Marinate the Shrimp:

  • Place the shrimp in a large resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the shrimp, ensuring they are well coated. Seal the bag or cover the dish and marinate the shrimp for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour, allowing the flavors to infuse. If using frozen shrimp, make sure they are fully thawed and patted dry before marinating.
  1. Assemble the Skewers:
  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before threading the shrimp and vegetables.
  • Thread the shrimp onto the skewers along with red bell pepper pieces, yellow bell pepper pieces, and red onion pieces, alternating between the shrimp and vegetables.
  1. Grill the Skewers:

  • Lightly oil the grill grates to prevent sticking.
  • Place the skewers on the preheated grill and grill shrimp for about 2-3 minutes per side, or until the shrimp are pink and opaque, and the vegetables are slightly charred and tender. Grill the shrimp until they are pink and opaque, indicating they are cooked shrimp. Alternatively, you can use a grill pan over medium high heat to cook the skewers indoors.
  1. Serve:
  • Remove the skewers from the grill and transfer them to a serving platter.
  • Garnish the shrimp kabobs with chopped fresh cilantro and serve with lime wedges or lemon wedges on the side. These grilled shrimp skewers are perfect for a quick and easy summer meal. For a variation, try making shrimp kabobs with different vegetables and marinades. This shrimp marinade can also be used for other shrimp recipes, such as shrimp tacos or shrimp salads.

Enjoy your summer margarita shrimp skewers with a refreshing Daisy Point Margarita!
