If you are missing the Mexican Caribbean and your Royal Resorts family right now, one way to bring back wonderful memories is by preparing one of your favorite dishes or drinks. Here are two recipes from the Royal kitchen to help you do just that.

The Royal Haciendas Shrimp Tacos
Quantities given are per person

3 jumbo shrimp
1/4 tsp of salt and pepper
1 oz. lime juice
4 oz. tempura batter
3 flour tortillas
2 oz. shredded lettuce
2 oz. pico de gallo salsa (chopped tomato, onion, coriander with a dash of serrano chili)
1 1/2 oz. chipotle chili flavored mayonnaise
To garnish: 1 sangria lettuce leaf, 1 1/2 oz. avocado and 1 slice of lime

Slice the shrimp in half lengthwise and marinate in the lime juice, salt and pepper for a few minutes. Then dip the marinated shrimp in tempura batter until thoroughly coated and fry in oil until golden and the shrimp are cooked through. Drain on kitchen paper and serve on warm tortillas (two shrimp halves per tortilla). Top with the chipotle mayonnaise, shredded lettuce, pico de gallo salsa and sliced avocado. Serve with the lettuce, avocado and lime garnish.
You can also use corn tortillas or fresh fish fillet instead of shrimp. If you like spicy chili sauce, fish and shrimp tacos are excellent with a dash of habanero chili salsa.

Golden Margarita
1 ½ oz. Tequila Milagro Plata
¾ oz. Grand Marnier
2 oz. orange juice
1 oz. lime juice
Blend with ice and serve in a salt-rimmed glass.

Buen provecho!
