grilled_lime_tequila_shrimpReady for a taste of the tropics to brighten your winter? All you need are  a few spices, a fresh lime, and a little tequila (which you already have around if you like margaritas) to add some sunshine to a seafood supper. Two pounds of shrimp — be sure to shell them — are marinated in the spices and margarita ingredients for several hours, depending on how spicy you want them, before cooking. Although this is also a great summer barbecue recipe, it works just fine indoors on the stove top too. From Vermont’s Rabbit Hill Inn, a beautiful and restful destination summer or winter.
