Chipotle Lime Shrimp

The first cool breeze has been felt in North Florida-YEAH!  Fall may actually arrive and take with it, the hot, humid and steamy Florida weather, at least for awhile.



While Mother Nature is contemplating a cool and crisp Autumn, I was contemplating a spicy grilled shrimp recipe that I came across while reading Kevin's blog www.closetcooking.blogspot.com Our friends really enjoyed this shrimp recipe and I wanted to share it with you.




Chipotle Lime Shrimp
(Serves 4)
Ingredients:
1 chipotle chili in adobo (chopped)
2 teaspoons adobo sauce
1 teaspoon cumin seed (toasted and ground)
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 lime  (juice and zest)
2 Tablespoons cilantro chopped
1 pound shrimp (peeled and deveined)

Directions:
1. Mix in chipotle, adobo sauce, cumin, brown sugar, lime zest, lime juice and cilantro in a bowl and let marinate for 20 minutes.
2. Skewer the shrimp or place shrimp in a grill basket
3. Oil up the grill and grill the shrimp for approximately 2-3 minutes per side.

Enjoy!

I love shrimps! And your recipe looks delicious .. the limes I find here in Patis do not have the same taste as those I used to buy in St Petersburg!

Chow and Chatter said...

oh wow great recipe, and love the flowers

Claudia said...

I make something similar - but not with adobe sauce so of course - need to try your version. Shrimp on the grill is as good as it gets - and a little spice enlivens my life!

Juliana said...

this looks delicious! we are just beginning to feel a bit of the cooler weather down here in New Orleans- but we'll be able to grill outdoors for a few more months so I'll be trying out this recipe!

The shrimps look so inviting & what's worse is I'm hungry now!

My son, daughter and I LOVE shrimp - especially grilled. But I'm going to have to tuck this recipe away for when my husband is out of town. He's allergic :(

Erica said...

I love shrimp....That looks great Velva:)

Chris said...

Sigh, one of the few things I miss about Florida....fresh seafood! Your shrimp looks great. I saw it at Kevin's too and it makes me want to go get some shrimp, I just miss being able to buy it right off the back of the boat in Mayport, FL.

Supriya said...

Shrimp look delish--nice recipe :) The sun flower in the vase look pretty.

My Carolina Kitchen said...

We love chipotles so I know I would like this recipe. I like the grill basket. Looks like it makes grilling shrimp a whole lot easier.

This looks soooooo gggooooooooooddddddd. I love all the pictures on your blog. You make them look extra delicious (I know they DO taste good in real life). My attempt always makes the food look like dog food. (And let's just not even discuss whether it does taste like so) I'll have to try the recipe when we invite people which happens about 3 times a year... I am people-deprived.

A Year on the Grill said...

sure, rub it in... My guess that your fall breeze doesn't compare to our fall breeze here in god's country (Kansas). And there is no chance of us getting those beautiful shrimp...

And I love grilling on those pans with the holes in em... Same as kabobing without all the effort.

these (and the recipe) look great!

Michelle said...

I love my grilling basket! Such a convenient way to grill!

Donna-FFW said...

These shrimp look so damn tasty. Your grilling basket is going on my christmas list!

Kitchen Butterfly said...

Looks great. I saw this over at his site too. Fantastic. Our weather fluctuates 40 degrees from morning until afternoon. I wake up wanting cool weather food like soup but by the time dinner roles around its warm and soup seems silly. Argh! This shrimp looks like a good inbetween the seasons food.

Laura in Paris said...

I have been waiting for a new post to let you know that have given you an award, but it seems it's taking more time than usual,so please, go and see my blog now!

Judy said...

Yumm. I love the flavors in this recipe. Must try this soon. Thanks for sharing.

KennyT said...

Cool, I have been looking for a chipotle recipe to try out! These shrimps are simply scrumptious!

spamwise said...

Sounds mouth-watering.

If I weren't already committed to making gambas al ajillo (shrimp with garlic) tonight, I'd do this in a heartbeat.

Thanks for visiting my blog earlier.

Rita said...

We just love shrimp, sounds like a yummy recipe, I usually make just some variation of a garlic shrimp . Now I'll have to see if I am able to get some of the ingredients up here in Canada.

Barbara GF said...

I love my grill wok, too, Velva. They are such fun to use.
Nice spread with the gators' tailgating party! Awesome selection of dishes.

meeso said...

And who thought shrimp could be made even tastier!
