Shrimp with Patron Silver Glaze

It’s a clean, crisp, and smooth nectar from the agave plant crafted into one of the best things to come from Jalisco Mexico. And it makes a nice glaze for shrimp. And being close to the holidays, it’s a nice way of finishing up the tequila left over from summer and make room for a new bottle on the shelf. So, let’s grab that bottle of Patron Silver, free a lime from the fridge, and make some sweet shrimp.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 cup Patron Silver tequila
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1½ tsp. lime juice
  • Half a dozen or so jumbo shrimp

Clean, peal, and de-vein your shrimp.

Combine the tequila, brown sugar, and lime juice in a sauce pan and simmer until its about the same consistence of maple syrup.

In a hot pan sauté the shrimp for a bout one minute, then brush the glaze on them and let them cook another minute or so. These guys do cook up rather quick.

I like to serve these guys up on a bed of roasted corn relish, or over Cajun spiced rice. But you could just plate them up with a shot of Patron Silver and a lime wedge and enjoy them as an appetizer (especially if you prepare this with a larger number of smaller shrimp).
