Mix together tequila, cumin, paprika, garlic, cayenne pepper (optional) together with shrimp and marinate for at least 20 minutes.  Place saute pan on medium heat with coconut oil, once hot, pour shrimp and marinade directly into the saute pan. Cook until shrimp is pink (about 2-3 minutes) and while shrimp is in saute pan squeeze fresh lime over the top and stir.  Remove from heat.
