How to make it

  • --Tip: To juice a lime: A lime at room temperature gives the most juice (1 1/2-2 tablespoons). Before juicing, roll the lime on the counter, pressing down with with your hand. If that recipe calls for both zest and juice, grate the zest before squeezing the juice.
  • --To segment an orange: After zesting, use a small sharp knife to remove any remaining peel and all the bitter white pith. To make attractive segments, work over a bowl to catch the juice and slice between each segment and its surrounding membrane.
  • Toss shrimp, tequila, orange zest, lime zest, and salt in a medium bowl.
  • Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Place onion in a small bowl, cover with cold water and some ice; let stand for 10 minutes, or until ready to use.

    OH my goodness, that sounds sooooo good - thank you for sharing this one...I love cold salads in the summer, and especially when combined with shrimp - the citrus makes it sound so refreshing. Thanks!
