Fresh cilantro(for garnish)
Peel and devein the shrimp, toss with paprika and salt. In a small bowl whisk together the tequila, lime juice, and honey. Slice the jalapeño into rounds.
Preheat a skillet (stainless steel works best) over medium high heat. Add in your fat of choice along with the shrimp. Let sear and brown on one side 2-3 minutes, flip and sear another minute. Toss in the jalapeño and cook 1 minute until slightly soft. Pour in the sauce and let reduce by 1/2 about 3 minutes. It should be thick and sticky. Garnish with cilantro and serve or store in a glass container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
