Today is Cinco de Mayo and this was our dinner. The recipe is from Taste of Home and I want to give full credit to the creator, Mandy Rivers, of Lexington SC. This is fabulous and I wouldn't change a thing. The marinade gives the shrimp heat and the wonderful cilantro cream sauce cools them down.

How to Make Grilled Chipotle Shrimp

Step-by-Step

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the first seven
    ingredients. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Allow this to cool completely.
  2. When cool, place the shrimp in a large resealable plastic bag and add the marinade. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
  3. While the shrimp are marinating, combine the ingredients for the sauce. Chill until serving.
  4. Thread the shrimp on metal or wooden skewers that have been soaked in water. Grill for 2-3 minutes per side or until shrimp are fully cooked. Serve with Cilantro Cream Sauce on the side. We wrapped some of the shrimp, topped with the sauce, in a warm flour tortilla. Delicious!
