Tequila- Lime Shrimp Kebabs

Since most of my new roommates are vegetarians, I had to provide another option along with the beef for my Foodbuzz 24×24 party. For them I chose to do tequila-lime marinated shrimp for kebabs. Shrimp only need to marinate for about 20 minutes, if you marinate them too long the acid in the marinade will begin to cook the shrimp.
