Mince garlic with salt
to form a paste, chopping in lime zest (and cilantro if you're using it).
Transfer to a small
bowl and whisk in lime juice, tequila, and spices. Pour into a heavy duty
Ziploc or a glass baking dish. Add fish or skewered scallops and cover
or zip up tight. (Soaking the skewers in the marinade will keep them from
burning and add to the flavor).
Marinate in the refrigerator
30 minutes, turning once. Remove from marinade and blot dry. (It's OK
if flavorful bits stick!) Grill over very hot coals till cooked to taste,
about 2-3 minutes per side, depending on thickness.
Serve with slices of Tequila Lime Butter to echo
the flavors of the marinade.
Serves: 4 - 6
