Cilantro Lime Shrimp

My husband is a HUGE fan of lime and cilantro.  Seriously.  I think he could eat those flavors on anything, even cereal. Well, maybe not cereal.  But these Cilantro Lime Shrimp are absolutely his creation and right up his alley.  They are quick and easy and taste great!

1 pound jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined (tail can be left on)
1 bunch cilantro, stems and all
1 T cumin
1/2 to 1 T cayenne pepper (we used 1 T)
1/2 of a 12-ounce Corona (or beer of choice)
2-4 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
2 T olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Juice of 1 lime
Wooden or metal skewers

Put all of the ingredients except the shrimp into a blender and pulse until smooth.  Pour this mixture into a large zipper bag and add in the shrimp.  Marinate the shrimp for at least 30 minutes and up to an hour.

If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for about 20 minutes so they don't burn on the grill.  Skewer the shrimp. Preheat your grill.  Grill the skewers over direct heat for 3-5 minutes per side or until the shrimp is done.
