Tequila Tilapia and Shrimp

Tequila Tilapia and Shrimp

I’ve always been a big fish lover. More so than red meat. It’s healthier and lighter too. One of my all-time favorite fish is the Tilapia. You can buy it anywhere and do just about anything with it.

This time around I wanted to come up with a quick meal, as many of you know that is how I like to cook. Quick!

Here is my Tequila Tilapia and Shrimp Recipe:

  1. Two Tilapia Fish Filets
  2. Pre-heat grilling pan on stove on medium heat.
  3. Coat fish with Worcestershire Sauce, garlic powder (not garlic salt), cilantro flakes, course black pepper
  4. Spray the grilling pan with an olive oil spray.
  5. Place tilapia in the grilling pan. Set timer to 6 minutes.
  6. Pour Tequila between the two tilapia filets.
  7. After the first 6 minutes, turn fish to grill the other side.
  8. Dress the top of the tilapia with garlic powder and cilantro flakes along with the black pepper.
  9. Pour more tequila between the filets and cover with an oversized lid to capture the steam from the tequila. Grill for another 5-6 minutes.
  10. Marinate your shrimp in tequila along with red crushed pepper, garlic powder and cilantro flakes.
  11. Start a small pan on medium heat.
  12. Coat the bottom of the pan with olive oil.
  13. Place the shrimp in the pan. (Here I prepared 12 medium size shrimp)
  14. Pour the tequila marinade over the top.
  15. Cook 2.5 minutes on each side of the shrimp.
  16. Tilapia is done…Shrimp is done.

Time to eat!
