Sammy Hagar’s Tequila and Lime Shrimp

Recipe of the Day


Here is a recipe from a knivesandneedlesblog fan, Rob Mahurin! This is a special recipe because it is directly from Sammy Hagar, yes of Van Halen! They are friends and it looks like they partied together recently!!!!


Check it out and try it at home!  Let us know how it turned out!

I was given this recipe by Sammy Hagar in Mill Valley, CA awhile back. Its called Tequila lime shrimp, you marinade 2-3 lbs shrimp in 2oz tequila(your fav) with juice of 1lime, 2 sliced jalapenos, chopped cilantro and a pinch of kosher salt. Marinade for at least 1hr. Heat 1tbs olive oil in a skillet, add shrimp and cook FAST with 1/2 the marinade. Serve over steamed white rice! Enjoy.
