HOLIDAY FOOD RECIPE WITH KICK!

Looking for something different for your holiday table? You and your family might enjoy this shrimp dish with kick. Here’s the easy recipe, courtesy of Sauza® Tequila. Posted with permission.



Tequila Lime Shrimp

You'll Need:

1 lb. large shrimp in shell (21 to 25 per pound), peeled and de-veined
¼ cup Sauza® Gold Tequila
1 tbsp. lime juice
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 tbsp. butter
¼ cup green onions
¾ cup cream or sour cream

To Make:

Toss shrimp with salt, green onions, lime juice, kosher salt and ¾ teaspoon coarsely ground pepper.

Heat butter in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium-high heat until foam subsides, then sauté shrimp, turning, until pink and just cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Reduce heat and add Sauza® Blanco Tequila, then increase heat to medium high. Tilt skillet over gas burner to ignite Tequila (or ignite with a long match; use caution, as flames may shoot up high). Cook, shaking skillet gently once or twice, until flames subside. Remove from heat and stir in cream. Serve sprinkled with chili powder.

With shrimp, lime and a splash of tequila, this tequila lime shrimp recipe can be ready in minutes!

SANTA TO THE RESCUE by Adele Downs
A sweet firefighter contemporary romance novella
New Release! From Entangled Publishing

Summary:

Firefighter Jamey Tucker knows three things in life to be true: An honorable man doesn't go back on his word, never hurts a woman, and lasting love isn't a myth. But with his recent move to a new job at the Appleton Fire station, the long hours don't offer hope of finding the love he’s looking for.
When Jamey meets beautiful pediatric nurse Heather Longhurst after hearing her sing Santa Baby in a supermarket aisle, he offers her a promise he discovers he can't keep. Heather has been betrayed by men in the past, making it hard for Jamey to gain her trust. Determined to find a way to win her heart, Jamey uses firefighter engine-uity and Heather's favorite song to prove he's got Christmas spirit she can believe in all year.

Excerpt:

Jamey Tucker unfastened his helmet, lifted his facemask and tugged off his fire retardant gloves before gulping a half liter of water. He could almost hear the liquid sizzle against his throat, dousing the heat, much like the smoldering embers behind him turned to sodden ash.

He held out the cup to the volunteer rescue worker manning the drinking water. “More.” That simple word was as much as he could manage. After chugging down a refill, moisture returned to his mouth and tongue. He licked his lips and released a satisfied sigh. All he needed was a hot shower and some chow to feel human again. “Thanks, man.”

“No problem. Merry Christmas, Jamey.”

“Yeah. You too.” He stank like a chimney after fighting a fire ‘till dawn. Dumb kids and their vacant warehouse Rave had caused their team hours of grief and gut wrenching work. Luckily, no one died. The last thing on his mind then or now had been Christmas.
