Chipotle Marinated Grilled Shrimp

We’d opened some chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and I needed yet another recipe to try them in.  We loved the way these tasted.  I was a bit rushed to cook them so next time I will allow more time for the marinade to set in.  It was a perfect balance of sweet and spice.; I will definitely be making these again!

Chipotle Shrimp Marinade

  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 1 pepper from the chipotle in adobo sauce ~ diced
  • 1/8 cup of the adobo sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic ~ minced
  • juice from one lime
  • 1 Tbs water
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Combine ingredients in small sauce pan.  Bring to simmer allowing sugar to dissolve and flavors to combine.  Allow to cool and toss with 1 pound raw shrimp; refrigerate for at least an hour.  Skewer shrimp if grilling; pour off excess marinade and reheat for basting if desired.

Grill shrimp or sauté over medium high heat.

    I’m a huge fan of using chipotle in adobo sauce…always imparts a great flavor to a dish or meats. I think I could eat all of those shrimp. 🙂
