This was amazing, I wowwed everyone with this recipe. I also substituted Frank's Red Hot for the chipolte and doubled many of the ingredients (not the butter), which made a nice broth for dipping. Also, I saved some spare lime juice which made for some complimentary tequila poppers! Highly recommended.

The only substitution I made was Red Hot sauce (which I had in the house) instead of the chipotle powder. This turned out great. It had just the right amount of citrus & spice to enhance the shrimp. My husband & my 3 kids loved it. I will definitely make it again.

A new regular on our seafood rotation! I doubled the cilantro, because we are crazy about it, & substituted a dash of Tobasco for the chipotle powder. The flavors were bright, & the few leftovers were delicious chilled! Yum.
