Chipotle-Lime Shrimp

chow time for some tasty chipotle-lime shrimp!
A new grocery store in our area had a great sale on shrimp last week. So we splurged and got some. We also tried out a new recipe and loved it! Since this is a Weight Watcher’s recipe, we didn’t feel too guilty to eat a piggy-size portion of it, LOL. As an added bonus, it is quick to fix.

Chipotle-Lime Shrimp

4 teaspoons olive oil
2 Teaspoons grated lime zest
1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon minced canned chipotles en adobo
2 garlic cloves, mined
¼ teaspoon salt
1 pound jumbo shrimp, peeled
Lime wedges

Spray the broiler rack with nonstick spray. Preheat the broiler. Combine the oil, lime zest and juice, chipotles en adobo, garlic, and salt in a large bowl. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Arrange the shrimp on the broiler rack. Broil 5 inches from the heat until just opaque in the center, about 4 minutes on each side. Serve with lime wedges.

Note: Chipotle chiles en adobo are smoked jalapeno peppers that have been canned in a sauce of ground chiles, herbs, and vinegar. Look for them in the Mexican food section of well-stocked supermarkets. If you can’t find chipotles en adobo, substitute the same amount of chipotle pepper sauce.

  9. Hi Donna,

    This looks great and since I am always looking for WW recipes and I love shrimp. Hey that asparagus looks good too and so do the scallop tators. I just read your Thomas Jefferson quote, isn't that quote the truth? I'm on my way down for dinner. LOL

  10. You'll love this recipe, Joan! The asparagus was on sale too, and the scalloped potatoes were courtesy of a Betty Crocker coupon. Her boxed potatoes are great, LOL!

    I don't know if my little political quotes will help people THINK, but you never know!

  11. This is OT, but I wanted to say thank you for a comment of yours, which I just read, over in Kari's blog {Just Livin' Large'}. Comments like yours make me not be so depressed, about our coming election.

    Again, thank you.
