    Elly in Canada's Note:

    This is one of my favourite appetizers, adapted from The Surreal Gourmet. You can adjust the 'heat' by changing the amount of chipotle pepper and adobo sauce. I usually serve this as an appetizer over a mesclun mix of leaf lettuces, herbs, and tender greens.

      These were just 'ok' for me. I made them exactly as written. I thought the cilantro sauce was too runny and the lime flavor was very overpowering - by itself it was disgusting, but with the shrimp it was ok. I don't think I will make this again. Sorry!

      I served this Christmas Eve and it was my husband's favorite dish of the night! I did cut back the heat but it was still great, with or without the sauce. I did add a little mayo to the sauce to thicken it a bit. Fast, easy, and sooooo good!!!
