SPICY! If you love spicy shrimp dishes, this one is for you. I serve it over rice, but you could have it any way you like. For those who don't like it really spicy, reduce the amount of chipotles. Would be great barbequed and basted with the sauce. Adapted from a magazine clipping. Easily cuts in half for smaller servings.

Excellent! Love all the spices! Just the perfect amount of heat! I did use Old Bay! Use 2 pounds of shrimp and didn`t have orange juice so I used lemon juice. Thanks for the heat!
