Tequila-Lime Shrimp

1 ounce Butter
1 ounce Olive Oil
1/4 cup onion - diced
1 medium Serrano chile - seeded & fine diced
2 oz tequila
1 pound shrimp (med or large) - peeled and deveined
1 teaspoon lime zest
8 ounces heavy cream
1/4 cup lime juice - from one whole lime
1 pinch Salt - to taste
2 pinches Black pepper - fresh ground
1 tablespoon Tequila - to finish

Melt butter in pan with oil. Saute onions and chile lightly then add shrimp. Continue to saute until shrimp turn a pink color. Flame with the tequila. Add the lime zest and heavy cream then reduce the sauce over medium heat. The sauce should boil lightly and begin to thicken a little. Add seasoning to taste and lime juice with a splash of tequila to finish.
Serve over brown rice (or shredded cauliflower if you are cutting carbs). Garnish with some parsley or cilantro.

We tried the recipe a couple weeks ago and it it grand! We served it over grits instead of rice.

Erm... what are grits?

Umm...they are kind of like Cream of Wheat or polenta but made from homeny, another kind of corn.

I don't think I could go 9 months without shrimp. They are the only protein I feel confident cooking.
