Diabetic Shrimp Recipes - This shrimp recipe took me no time to make. Well, after de veining the shrimp... which seems to be the longest part about fixing a shrimp dish. The combination of tequila and honey gives it a sweet but not too sweet of a taste. I used Patron Silver, which is "good tequila," but I have a feeling that any tequila will do. I ate this shrimp dish without any dipping sauce, but my husband always prefers to have something to dive his shrimp into. Oh, and may I add that this is a very diabetic low carb recipe. For those who are really watching their carbohydrate intake. ha As always.... ENJOY!!

Notes: Shrimp makes the perfect entree for after-work dinner parties: It must be cooked fast or it toughens up and loses its juiciness. If you're a garlic fan, you might consider adding even more of the fragrant bulb. The savory garlic here keeps the honey from making the dish too sweet, and the tequila adds a welcome punch. Add a bit of crushed red pepper for a spicy-sweet sensation
