Jose Cuervo, La Reserva Tequila habanero-lime butter

This condiment is out of this world on vegetables and potatoes, and you won’t believe the flavor it gives grilled fish or pork. And on good bread WOW!

1⁄2 cup sweet butter
1 habanero chile , minced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

Tequila Shrimp
My friends Ryan And Claire live in Houston. They often take a drive down to Corpus Christie and play in the surf with their baby boy, Layne. They sent me a T-shirt that says “The White Trash Rivera” along with this delicious recipe. It takes about 15 minutes to make. I think it tastes even better with a cold Margarita while I’m wearing that Shirt.

1 Tbl. olive oil
2 Tbl. Sweet butter
1 white onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
20 medium shrimp, peeled, deveined
1/3 cup tequila reposado
3 Plum tomatoes, diced
2 Serrano chiles, chopped fine
Juice of 2 key limes
3 Tbl. chopped cilantro
Salt and fresh ground black pepper

Sauté the onions and garlic in the olive oil and butter, in a medium sauté pan. When the onions are soft and translucent, but not browned, add the shrimp and continue to sauté for 2 minutes on each side, until bright pink. Then add the tequila and flame the alcohol. Add the tomatoes and sauté for another 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and add the limejuice, Serrano, cilantro and avocado. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately with white rice
