  • In a bowl, stir together the garlic, lme juice, and sea salt and pepper to taste. Add the shrimp and toss until thoroughly coated. Let marinate while preparing the sauce, at least 5 minutes.
  • In a heavy frying pan or cazuela over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil. Add the onion and saute until golden, about 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring constantly, just until the color deepens, less than 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the tomato mixture to a blender, allowing any excess oil to drip back into the pan. Reserve th oil in the pan. Add the chiles an dsauce, cola, and oregano to the blender. Process until you get a textured sauce.
  • Remove the shrimp from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Return the pan with the reserved oil to medium-high heat and heat until the oil begins to shimmer. Add half of the shrimp and cook until opaque, about 2 minutes. Using the slotted spoon, transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining shrimp and add them to the plate.
  • Return the still-hot pan to medium-high heat and add the sauce. Fry, stirring frequently, until the sauce thickens and the flavors deepen, about 5 minutes. Stir in the shrimp and cook for 2 minutes longer just to heat through. Divide the shrimp evenly among warmed individual plates. Spoon some of the remaining chipotle sauce over each serving and serve at once.
