How to make it

- Add the peeled shrimp and mix well;
- Set aside, NO LONGER THAN 30 MINUTES, THE LIME WILL COOK THE SHRIMP!
- Alternate the shrimp and pepper squares on eight 6 to 8 inch skewers. If using bamboo... SOAK FOR 1 HOUR!
- Place the skewers on a lightly oiled grill and brush the remaining marinade over.
- Grill until the shrimp are pink and cooked through, turning once, about 2 1/2 minutes per side. Depends on the heat of your grill.
- Wrap tortillas in foil and place on side of grill with no fire… to heat.
- Serve in the warm tortillas, cilantro sprigs and diced tomato if desired. Top with a squirt of lime and sour cream.
- Awesome! Yummy I can eat a ton of these!
