Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pound skirt steak
  • Weber brand Carne Asada seasoning or your favorite steak seasoning
  • Spicy Coctel de Camarones see link above

Instructions

Directions

  1. Prepare the spicy coctel de camarones. But, instead of boiling the shrimp, you are going to grill the shrimp. Simply season with the same steak seasoning. Drizzle with a fresh lime juice and oil. Grill for 2-3 minutes per side on preheated grill. Let cool, them mix in to the cocktail base. Cover and chill until ready to use.

  2. Season the steak generously wit seasoning and let it come to room temperature for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat grill to high. If using cast iron skillet, preheat with grapeseed or canola oil a few minutes before ready to cook.
  4. Place seasoned skirt steak on direct heat and grill for 3-4 minutes per side. This will yield a medium/rare steak. if you like it more well done, leave it on for an extra minute per side. Remove from heat and let steak rest for a few minutes.
  5. To serve, slice steak, against the grain, on your cutting board. Add a generous amount of spicy coctel de camarones. Serve with warm corn tortillas! Yields 4-6 servings.

Recipe Notes

If you cannot find the El Pato brand sauce for the shrimp cocktail, you can substitute with some Clamato and hot sauce.
