DIRECTIONS

  • Whisk the lime juice, cilantro, chipotle chile, adobo sauce, and brown sugar together in a small bowl; set aside.
  • Pat shrimp dry with paper towels; season with ¼ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper, and sugar.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over high heat until smoking.
  • Add half the shrimp to pan in a single layer; cook until spotty brown and just pink around the edges, about 1 minute.
  • Off heat, use tongs to quickly flip over each shrimp and let stand until all but very center is opaque, about 30 seconds.
  • Transfer shrimp to plate and cover with foil.
  • Add remaining tablespoon oil to skillet and return to high heat until just smoking; sear remaining shrimp.
  • After second batch has stood off heat, return first batch to skillet and toss to combine.
  • Add glaze, cover, and let stand to warm through glaze, about 1 minute.
  • Toss shrimp again to coat and serve.
