Grilled Tequila Lime Shrimp

My number 1 way to keep from getting bored with my meals is looking for new recipes or even copying some fancy dish from a restaurant. You tweak to your liking obviously and its a lot of fun in the process. New recipe I tried comes from All Recipes. I adapted it a bit, used more tequila and a lot less salt. Not a big salt fan myself.

2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons tequila
1/4 cup olive oil
1 pinch garlic salt
1 pinch ground cumin
ground black pepper to taste
1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
6 (10 inch) wooden skewers
1 large lime, quartered

The shrimp turned out awesome, will be making this again and most likely going to try it with other meats as well. Who knew there was other uses for Tequila?
