If you love a little bit of spice in your food, you’re going to love this simple Chipotle Spiced Shrimp.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 pounds jumbo shrimp, peeled and de-veined
  • Juice from 2 whole limes
  • 1 tablespoon adobo sauce (look for canned chipotles in adobo sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup finely chopped Spanish onion
  • 1 cup finely chopped carrots
  • 2 cans (14.5 ounces each) Muir Glenn Organic Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes
  • Mrs. Dash All-Natural “Southwest Chipotle” seasoning, to taste
  • Unrefined sea salt, to taste
  • Small handful chopped fresh cilantro

Instructions

  1. Preheat the grill. Soak bamboo skewers in cold water for 30 minutes, or use metal skewers.
  2. Add the lime juice, adobo sauce and 2 teaspoons of the extra virgin olive oil to a large zip-top bag. Add the shrimp to the bag and marinate the shrimp while you prepare the sauce.
  3. Heat the remaining tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and onion; sauté 2-3 minutes, or until onion softens. Add the carrots and cook an additional 2 minutes. Add the tomato sauce and Mrs. Dash seasoning. Simmer sauce for 10 minutes.
  4. While sauce is simmering, grill shrimp 1-2 minutes per side, until grilled through (be careful not to over-cook!!)
  5. Remove sauce from heat and stir in cilantro. Add the cooked shrimp. Serve shrimp and sauce over a bed of steamed spinach, brown rice or quinoa.
