This recipe for tequila and lime shrimp scampi comes from the new cookbook “Cork and Knife” (Page Street Publishing)

The book, by Emily and Matt Clifton, is full of recipes made with wine, beer, bourbon and other alcoholic beverages.

Here, tequila subs for the white wine in classic scampi. And carrying out the Mexican theme is the addition of lime, ancho chile powder, jalapeno and cilantro.
