This Tequila Based Marinade Is The Bomb Dot Com [RECIPE]

Today is MY holiday because it is “National Tequila Day.”  My favorite tequilas are 1800 Silver Tequila, 1800 Coconut Tequila, Milagro Reposado, Altos Tequila Plata, Casamigos Blanco Tequila, or Patron Silver. [I realize now, that I have quite a few favorites]  One I can’t wait to try Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s tequila called Teremana Tequila Reposado.

I do love a good margarita and sipping tequila, but I also love to cook with tequila.  This tequila-based marinade is the bomb dot com.  It works well with baked or grilled chicken, fish, and shrimp.  The secret is to allow the chicken, fish, and shrimp for several hours or even overnight.  This is my go-to marinade for when I want to impress a man.  My Dad always said a way to man’s heart is through his stomach.  The best part, it is the most effortless marinade ever.  If you like garlic, add more garlic.  I typically never measure out the marinade, I eyeball it and keep it moving.  Another great tip is to get the gallon size storage bags, combine all the ingredients, thrown in the meat, close the bag, shake, and refrigerate for several hours, if not overnight.
