Tequila Lime Marinade

This marinade was originally paired with large sea scallops, but it was so delicious we could see it going with virtually any protein of your choice.

  • ¼ cup tequila
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 to 2 jalapenos, stemmed, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • ¼ cup green onion, cut in ½” pieces
  • 1 cup chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp salt

Combine ingredients in food processor and puree. Taste mixture and add more jalapeno as desired.
