New York Times Best Selling Author Susan Mallery and her "Foodie" Blog

Romance and New York Times Best Selling author Susan Mallery has a "foodie blog" Susan Mallery Cooks.  One of my favorite shrimp dishes came from her blog.  Check out the glass; isn't that a fun way to serve this.  How about for Cinco de Mayo?
Shrimp Margaritas 1 lb shrimp Tequila-lime marinade (recipe below) 2 T honey ¼ C crushed tortilla chips 4 C shredded lettuce 2 T fresh cilantro, minced 1 carrot, shredded 2 green onions, sliced 2 oz pepper jack cheese, cut into ¼-inch chunks 1 avocado, chopped Salsa, store bought or homemade Marinate the shrimp in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours. Drizzle the honey into a circle the size of the rim of four large margarita glasses. Swoosh the glass around in the honey, then swoosh it around in the crushed tortilla chips. Set aside. Preheat the oven to broiling (500 degrees). Toss the lettuce, cilantro, and carrots and divide equally into the four glasses. Top with onions, cheese, and avocado. Drain the shrimp and place on the rack of a broiling pan. Broil for 2 minutes on each side. Divide the shrimp equally into the four margarita glasses. Top with salsa and serve. Tequila-Lime Marinade ½ C tequila Juice of one lime 1 T honey 1 T water 2 T fresh cilantro, minced 1 t Kosher salt ½ t chili powder Mix all ingredients until salt and honey have dissolved.
