Chipotle Glazed Shrimp

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In saucepan large enough to hold shrimp, heat olive oil over medium heat, and saute onion until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add garlic, cumin, oregano and saute for 1 minute.
  3. Stir in water, vinegar, chiles, ketchup, orange juice and brown sugar.
  4. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for about 5 to 10 minutes, until slightly reduced and thickened.
  5. Cover sauce over very low simmer.
  6. Heat oil in large skillet.
  7. Lay shrimp in skillet, sprinkle with Old Bay if using, and saute shrimp until just done, only about 3 or 4 minutes.
  8. Add shrimp to sauce, and raise heat to high, cooking for about 1 minute, stirring gently until shrimp is coated with glaze.
  9. Serve over hot cooked rice.

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!

Very spicy but loved it! I accidentally put a can of chipotle sauce instead of the 2 chipotles.
