Chipotle Lime Grilled Shrimp

Warning: This is spicy! I ate these shrimp with tomatoes and avocado dressed with a little lime juice. They would make great shrimp tacos with pico de gallo and avocado.

Ingredients:
6-8 Shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 Lime - just the juice of 1/4 lime
1/2 Chipotle Pepper, chopped
1 Tbs Adobo Sauce (the sauce the Chipotles come in)
1 Clove Garlic, Chopped
1/4 tsp. Cumin
1 Tbs Fresh Cilantro, chopped
Salt Pepper







In a bowl, mix all the ingredients but the shrimp. Add the shrimp to marinate for 20 minutes.

Heat a grill pan to high heat. Spray with non stick spray. Add the shrimp to the pan. Grill for 1-2 mins on one side. Flip the shrimp over to the other side and pour on the remaining marinade. Grill for another 1-2 minutes or until your shrimp have turned pink. They will over cook very fast on high heat.

Extra chipotle peppers? I put the individual peppers in an ice cube tray, add the adobo and freeze them. Once they are frozen I put them in a ziplock bag in the freezer for the next recipe.
