Me too! Maybe Louise (Fabila) will be able to force Andy's hand when she is there!

Sorry but they had someone out sick a few days so they were down a person, I didn't have the heart to ask him. I did try it when I got back home. I reduced white wine with a little fresh garlic, added both tequila and triple sec, reduced that and added Louisiana hot sauce. Once it reduced for a bit I put in the uncooked shrimp with a little flour to thicken. Finished with some butter to add richness. It had a very similar taste but the color was a little off and was hotter than Andy's. I have to keep experimenting with amounts but I'm close.

It will never match Andy's recipe but I need my margarita shrimp fix satisfied more than twice a year so I'll keep trying.

Sounds good Louise! After you finish experimenting and you think you have it just right, you can post it and I'll give it a try. Perhaps it could be an excuse for an extra trip!

Louise, I've never had the dish, but I do have a suggestion for you: instead of cooking the shrimp in the sauce, pan-saute them first and then just toss them in the finished sauce at the end. The shrimp will have a much better flavor and texture that way. When I pan-saute my shrimp, I just toss them in a little olive oil, salt, and pepper and cook them in a hot saute pan until they release, turn and finish cooking. I'd make the sauce in this same pan after I removed the shrimp.

Also, not sure which hot sauce you used, but I find Frank's to be flavorful and not as hot as some.

Good luck experimenting! That's half the fun!

Kaye -- I have tried cooking them in a separate pan and tossing into the finished sauce. I've also tried it in the sauce. I have marinated the shrimp first in tequila or not. Didn't seem to make any different when I marinated so why waste the tequila, right? I have tried Frank's hot sauce in the past but for some reason (can't remember) I buy Louisiana now. Andy did confirm that I had the right hot sauce. I surely will try it with Frank's next time.

Did I mention I use to add lime juice with the tequila until Andy told no lime and that he used triple sec. I have the taste pretty close it's just too darn hot for me, maybe Frank's is the key!

Once you have it "just right" please share with the rest of us who crave the margarita sauce. Thanks, and happy tasting!

Well, you're certainly persistent! Sounds like you're almost there. I second the request that you share the recipe once it's perfected. Sounds like something I'd like to try.

Sorry, I made several attempts to get into the kitchen but it was never a good time for them.
