Chipotle Shrimp

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 2 tbsp cilantro leaves
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 red fresno chile seeds and ribs removed
  • 1 tsp ground chipotle powder
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 lb peeled and deveined shrimp (I used 21/25 count*)
  • oil for greasing the grill or pan as needed


In a food processor, blend together the cilantro, garlic, lime juice, chile, chipotle powder, oil, and salt, until smooth, about 60 seconds.
Place the marinade in a bowl and add the shrimp. Toss to coat.
Marinate the shrimp for 30 minutes (or 15 if you're in a hurry). Make sure not to do longer than that, or the marinade will start to affect the texture of the shrimp and make it mushy.
Heat a grill** over medium high heat, and cook the shrimp for about 1 minute on each side, until cooked through. The shrimp will turn from a translucent/gray color to pink when they're cooked through.
You can also sear the shrimp in a hot nonstick skillet if you prefer.
