    JillAZ's Note:

    This recipe is SOO good! It came from the "BBQ USA" cookbook with a few modifications. They list it as an appetizer but I have also served the shrimp with a salad as a meal. My seven year old even requested this for his birthday dinner last week! Cooking time reflects marinating time. Yield is an estimate. It depends on if you serve this as an appetizer or main dish.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    For the Marinade

    For the sauce


    1. 1
      If using wooden skewers, soak in cold water while shrimp marinates.
    2. 2
      To marinate the shrimp: Put the cilanto, garlic and chipotle with sauce in to a glass or plastic bowl.
    3. 3
      Stir in the olive oil and lime juice.
    4. 4
      Season with salt and pepper.
    5. 5
      Add the shrimp and toss to coat with marinade.
    6. 6
      Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
    7. 7
      For the sauce: Whisk together in a glass bowl the ketchup, orange juice, lime juice, worcestershire sauce and chipotles with sauce.
    8. 8
      Add salt and pepper to taste.
    9. 9
      Set aside.
    10. 10
      To cook shrimp: Remove shrimp from marinade.
    11. 11
      Discard marinade.
    12. 12
      The original recipe called for threading one shrimp on each skewer.
    13. 13
      This makes a nice presentation but takes a little longer to prepare!
    14. 14
      I Thread several shrimp, about 4 or 5 depending on the size of the shrimp, on each skewer.
    15. 15
      Place on an oiled grill that has been preheated to medium high.
    16. 16
      Cook for about 2 minutes per side.
    17. 17
      They will turn pink when done.
    18. 18
    19. 19
      I have also done these on my George Foreman Grill without using the skewers.
    20. 20
      (actually, this is how I do it most of the time!) Just throw the shrimp on and cook a couple of minutes.
    21. 21
      Place bowl of sauce in the center of a round platter and arrange shrimp around the sauce.
    22. 22
      Sprinkle with additional chopped cilantro if desired.
    23. 23

      I loved the marinade and the sauce. The chipotles added the perfect amount of smoky heat to the grilled shrimp. I only needed about halve the amount of the sauce and didn't have the cilantro for the marinade but we absolutely loved them and I am adding this to my favorites cookbook!

      Just a wonderful recipe!!!!! I put them on the type of grate you use for grilling fish, rather than on skewers. Worked out fine.

      This was so tasty & easy! I will definitely be making these again and again. I followed this recipe exactly except I didn't thread the shrimp onto skewer - just threw them on a grill pan. Both the sauce and the marinade had a nice kick to it, but it wasn't too spicy. The combo of heat, sweet & acidity was perfectly balanced. I served this with Ceasar salad as a light dinner. Thanks for sharing this one!!
