Delicious spicy marinated shrimp. Easy on indoor or outdoor grill. I serve this with yellow rice and/or baked potatoes. I also put an extra shot of hot pepper sauce on the rice, love it spicy!

Directions

  1. Mix together the garlic, chipotle peppers, lemon juice, olive oil, paprika, cilantro, kosher salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, and cayenne pepper in a bowl. Stir in the shrimp, and mix well to thoroughly coat. Marinate for 30 minutes in refrigerator.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove the shrimp from the marinade, and discard excess marinade. Thread about 5 shrimp per skewer, and grill on the preheated grill until the shrimp turn pink and opaque in the center, about 2 minutes per side.

I made this recipe for the first time for a 4th of July last year. It was a winner and I made several batches becuse it became a regular request for the rest of the cookouts during tht e summer of 2010. I was looking for this again so I can use it today because of the beautiful weather here in Florida. Wonderful flavor and great reason to get together with friends and family. I use the recipe basically as is except for the marinating time. I always get shrimp when it is on sale. I purchase at least 10 lbs in two pound portions. When I get home I make the marinade x5 and place each portion of marinade in gallon zip lock freezer bags. I place the shrimp in the marinade and freeze making sure they are laying flat so they freeze into a flat sheet of goodness. When I know I will be needing one of these, I place it in the refrigerator to thaw. During the thawing process they merinade and I cut down on my prep time because I already did this ahead of time. Happy cooking and thanks for this delicious recipe.

Amazing recipe. I didn't have a grill nearby so I baked them at 425 for about 10 minutes. I also cooked some spanish rice along with and then served as burritos.

Made 6lbs as an appetizer a large party, served COLD. It was excellent & so much easier for a crowd because it was made the day before. Served with Amy's Cilantro dip. Everyone loved this, I even got calls the next day about it. EDIT: Per another reviewers advice I froze a portion of this to use another day. It did not taste the same. MUCH better fresh.
