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
