Shrimp is easily one of my favorite foods. They are so good all by themselves but it is also really easy to add a ton of flavour to them. I bookmarked this recipe for chipotle and orange marinated shrimp while ago when I saw it on the food network. I really like the sound of the smoky and spicy chipotle with orange marinade. I was cleaning out my fridge when I found some leftover chipotles in adobo sauce and I knew that I was going to use them to make this dish. They were super simple to make, just marinate the prawns and grill/fry for a few minutes. They were really tasty!
Orange Chipotle Shrimp
- 1 pound shrimp (peeled and deveined)
- 1 orange juice and zest
- 1 tablespoon chipotles chilies in abode sauce (chopped)
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 3 tablespoons cilantro (chopped)
- salt and pepper to taste
- Marinate the shrimp in the orange juice and zest, chipotles, oil and cilantro for 15+ minutes.
- Remove the shrimp from the marinade and season with salt and pepper.
- Skewer the shrimp and grill or fry in a pan for 1-3 minutes per side.

you’re right. shrimps have a great natural sweet flavour but a little help from other ingredients makes it absolutely mindblowing. thumbs up. again.;)

I hardly ever eat shrip (or prawns as we call them) because they are so expensive, but…so good! This looks really fresh and vibrant, orange, chilli and cilantro (or coriander as we calls it!) sound like the perfect combo for shrimp. Or prawns…whatever 🙂
I love shrimp on skewers. This is one nice recipe. The picture makes me hungry, too bad.

How’d you know I was craving shrimp?
The only thing missing in this dish is a cosmo to go with it.
Orange and chipotle! What a great match! The shrimp look delicious!
I am going to try these. Looks yummy!
I love shrimp (although in the UK they’re called prawns) a shrimp over here is very, very tiny.
PS: I had a go at one of your recipes last night. The ‘Dan Dan Mian’ – Yummy!!!
Shrimp (or prawns as I know them!) are definitely one of my favourite foods too. I love their meaty texture. This recipe with the orange and chilli sounds lovely, I can see why you wanted to make it! They look droolworthy!

Kevin, I love this! A great new way to make shrimp…thank you!
Wow those look really good! My partner doesn’t eat seafood so I don’t get to eat a lot of shrimp and I really miss it, especially when I see such beautiful photos of it like on your blog! 😀
