Active time: 20 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
In a large skillet, heat 1/2 Tbsp. oil. Add shrimp, season with 1/2 tsp. each salt and black pepper and cook over medium-high heat until nearly cooked through, about 1 minute per side. Transfer to a medium bowl.
Add 1 1/2 Tbsp. oil to skillet. Add banana peppers, garlic and onion; cover and cook over medium heat, stirring a few times, until tender, about 7 minutes. Stir in paprika. Increase heat to medium-high; add cherry peppers, pickling liquid and tequila; and bring to a simmer. Return shrimp and any accumulated juices to skillet and season with 1/4 tsp. salt. Swirl in butter.
Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, heat remaining 1 1/2 Tbsp. oil over medium heat. Add rice and stir well, breaking up grains, and heat through, about 2 minutes. Stir in cumin, lime zest and juice and 1/2 tsp. salt. Spoon rice and shrimp onto plates and serve with lime wedges.
