  1. Whisk olive oil, lime juice, tequila, garlic powder, Cajun seasoning, seasoned salt, and black pepper in a bowl; pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add shrimp, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 4 hours.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Soak wooden skewers in a bowl of water for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove shrimp from the marinade, and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. Thread shrimp on skewers, piercing once near the tail and once near the head.
  4. Arrange skewers on preheated grill; cook shrimp until they are bright pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center, 6 to 8 minutes.

omgOOOOODDDNESSS! I made this for a dinner I hosted for my neighbors, and I was SO pleased with the flavor!! The only thing I changed, was I added fresh minced garlic to the marinade-and, Oh yes...

These were pretty good but a tad too spicy for me, I suspect it was the combination of Cajun seasoning and pepper.

Although I thought this was fantastic.... the rest of my family didn't care for it. I would do a 5 star if you like heat and a lot of it. It was way too spicy for even my husband.

Excellent flavor and the spices were very good. However, I found it a bit too salty and the next time I use the marinade I will cut the salt in half.

Very tasty! I used 1.5 lbs of raw shrimp and marinated for 5 hours. Great tangy taste without being too hot for our girls. I served it over some phad thai noodles. yumm!

The flavor was nice but it was too salty. I blame the store brand of Cajun seasoning which probably has more salt than a more expensive brand. If I use this recipe again, I'll leave out the sea...

Amazing recipe, my wife and I like spicy so I was heavy handed with the Cajun spice and the cayenne pepper. I served it with grilled zucchini and squash also marinated with the same spices.

Absolutely wonderful! I used some regular cayenne pepper as I didn't have the Asian heat. Will definitely make again.

Great flavor! Would use a bit less seasoned salt next time, but will definitely make this again.
