Save Recipe


  • 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


  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.
