Ingredients


  • SHRIMP

  • 1/2 cup silver tequila

  • 1/2 lime

  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 8 black peppercorns

  • 24 jumbo shrimp (about 1 lb. total), unpeeled

  • CREMA

  • 3/4 cup sour cream

  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lime zest

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • Kosher salt

  • Lime wedges, for garnish, optional

Preparation


1. Make shrimp: In a straight-sided sauté pan, combine 4 cups water, tequila, lime, salt and peppercorns; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover; simmer for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to barest simmer and add shrimp. Cook until just pink, about 3 minutes. Turn off heat; let shrimp sit in pan for 2 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel–lined baking sheet and let cool. Peel shrimp, leaving tails on. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to overnight.

2. Make crema: In a small bowl, combine sour cream, lime zest and juice and honey; season generously with salt.

3. Arrange shrimp on a platter, with crema for dipping. Garnish with lime wedges, if desired.
